"Seeing plenty of whole cluster, the 2015 Pinot Noir Block M sports a lighter ruby color as well as lots of forest floor, mulled red fruits, spice and sandy/loamy notions. It has tons of salinity on the palate, plenty of tannin (they're ripe, however) and will benefit from short term cellaring. "

Melville Winery LLC

Block M is a windswept mesa on the west side of the estate lying adjacent to Melville's Terraces block. Sitting atop a sun exposed mesa with several feet of botella clay soil, the extremity of Block M is enhanced by the gravitational pull on three exposed sides forcing the roots to search deeper for sustenance.
Block M is made up of equal amounts of clones 114 and 115. The lesser known 114 is lush, velvety and textural with an elegantly pliant internal core, while clone 115 delivers fruit at a higher pitch coupled with a more structurally pronounced personality.

25% of the fruit was gently de-stemmed with 75% remaining as whole clusters. Yields were 3.0 pounds/vine (2.7 tons/acre).

Aged in neutral barrel (5 to 20 year old French oak).
