Rita Hills) is laced with sweet floral notes and bright, red-toned fruit. Delicate and medium in body, and made in a decidedly gracious, open-knit style, it is a good choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Antonio Galloni. Tasting date: June 2017

Open this bottle and you’ll find a lot of smoky oak, but there’s good material underneath, apparent in the undertow of fruit. Give it air and you’ll have a cool, rich pinot, its tannins a contrast of gritty and plush...   Open this bottle and you’ll find a lot of smoky oak, but there’s good material underneath, apparent in the undertow of fruit. Give it air and you’ll have a cool, rich pinot, its tannins a contrast of gritty and plush. Pour it with braised duck.

Fermented with some whole bunches and matured in neutral barrels, this is very much in the Melville style to which readers will have become accustomed.-WK

The 2015 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills is the largest production cuvée of the estate and it's a year in, year out value.

Rita Hills is the largest production cuvée of the estate and it's a year in, year out value. The 2015 (this was also reviewed last year) is a spice-filled, cherry, and forest floor-scented effort that has medium-bodied depth and richness, the focused style of the vintage, and a good finish. It's showing slightly better than this time last year and should age gracefully going forward.
