MELVILLE ESTATE SYRAH DONNA'S BLOCK
MELVILLE

For lovers of cool-climate Syrah from California, this bottling by Chad Melville may be the epitome. Aromas of wild peppercorn husks, dewy pepper trees, freshly rinsed ashtray and singed black plum draw in the nose. The palate continues the uniquely elegant ride into bay leaf, green peppercorn, espresso dust and Ruby Red fruit flavors that pop through the cracked pepper.
