Vineyard Block Estate

Melville

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! — 9 days ago

Deep ruby. Pungent nose. Funky on first sniff, but man o man the taste profile was incredible. Mellowed as the night wore on. Fruit was lush and polished. Yum. — 2 days ago

Very good with darker fruit than the Block 23 due to Dijon clone fruit vs. Pommard clone fruit. Silky finish and Kept me coming back for more...consistent smiles! — 5 days ago

Liparita

V Block Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Really loving this for winter or by a fire. HEAVY but has the rustic feel of South African Cab - a certain grit to it. The nose will throw you off but definitely dive into it, it’s ready to drink in the 2014 vintage already. Heavy complex - unlike a Bordeaux. — 3 days ago

Brittan Vineyards

Basalt Block Pinot Noir 2014

Straightforward but tasty - concentrated and earthy with notes of dark cherry and cranberry, with a minerally and slightly salty finish. — 13 days ago

Amalie Robert

The Uncarved Block Pinot Noir 2012

On the palate strawberry and cherry flavors, slight sweet undertones, cola and herb notes and smooth gentle tannins. Well balanced on a lingering finish ending with mineral nuances. Drink now. — 16 days ago
