IMO, vintage to vintage, the Melville Estate has to be the most consistently delicious Pinot for < $30. Never disappoints.

It is like walking through a rose garden, ; a mixture of rose petal, wet soil, a hints of oak....
following up with a black raspberry, ripe cherry and thyme on the nose.
Great intensity, balance, silky, moderate tannin, medium acidity and herbal finish.
Very Volnay like except for the lower in acidity !!!!
14% ABV
