"Maybe the best Pinot Noir from Chad to date, the 2012 Pinot Noir Melville Vineyard saw 50% stems and 20 months in 50% new French oak. It is flat-out awesome. Possessing lots of salty minerality in its black raspberry, truffle, autumn leaf and wood-smoke-scented bouquet, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a seamless, silky texture and fabulous persistence and flavor intensity that comes through on the finish. While it saw 50% stems, they're nicely integrated and work well with this cuvee."
