Estate Fox Block Nine Pinot Noir 2014

Tried a Sample and bought a bottle. In 1989, Melville Vineyards, was founded in Sonoma, where Ron Melville grew high quality, Chard, Merlot, and Cab Sauv. In 1996, Ron's desire to grow Pinot Noir brought Melville Vineyards to Lompoc's Sta. Rita Hills, in Santa Barbara County. Ruby with aromas of sweet red fruits and vivid spice. Flavors of raspberry and strawberry, currant like, adding cinnamon and leathery notes. Fine tannins, lingering ending with nice mouthfeel bringing back fruit and subtle spice. Nice! — 4 days ago

Donna's Chardonnay 2013

Shared with Elizabeth before her river rafting trip. Tropical gold. Medium gold color. Huge expansive aromas of white flowers - jasmine; flavors of white stone fruit - nectarines and peaches, mango and pineapple with soft oak hints. Starts off big and bold, lingers in the mid-palate flavors, before finishing long and lush. Compliments our dinner of mahi-mahi with a mango pineapple curry. This bottle is at its peak. Bravo!!! — a month ago

Clonal Series Estate Clone 2A Pinot Noir 2006

A single clone pinot from Melville’s Clonal Series, this is surprisingly robust given its age. Terrific spice on the nose and palate, this has nice depth and a balanced finish. Probably has several more years of life left. Pretty impressive. — 2 days ago

Estate Syrah 2016

Garrigue! Spicy, savory, perfumed brambles with a nice backbone of tannins and fruit, Truly excellent Santa Rita Hills Syrah that tastes like a Northern Rhône. Thankfully, balanced and smooth as well; I could drink this all night.. Was delicious at the tasting room in Santa Barbara”s Funk Zone and even better at home with bone marrow toast and pate. This was the 2016 vintage. Only $36! — 2 hours ago
