MELVILLE ESTATE PINOT NOIR BLOCK M
MELVILLE

Chad Melville makes this wine from a parcel in his family’s vineyards on the west side of Lompoc, on a small mesa where the soil is deep clay. He includes 70 percent whole clusters in the fermentation, lending the wine a lot of spice surrounding the ripe red cherry flavor. It’s salty and sweet, with a briny, nori-like note in the end, a substantial and mouthwatering pinot noir to serve with roast arctic char. (598 cases)
