A Shabu Shabu lunch with a .375 of Melville Pinot on a cold June gloom afternoon! This Pinot is so consistent and the dark cheery is dominate. Happy Sunday.

Translucent cherry red color. Nose of earthy strawberry and spice. Taste of red fruits with a long orange, tart cherry, tea, cola and perfume finish. Gets better with every sip.

Unbelievable. Gets better with every sip.

Eyes:
Light, ruby red. A bit ruddy. Thin-bodied.

Nose:
That signature Melville fishy-sea salt smell. Clay? Subtle at first, but hints of orange peel, candied red fruit, and dried flowers. Wet leaves and earth.

Mouth:
Dry and a bit creamy (malo?). Spicy and savory - cloves, orange peel, coriander. Hints of dried red fruit at the finish.

Very nice medium bodied Pinot Noir. Pairs well with Fillet and salad!
