LOVED this Pinot from @MelvilleWinery, wish we bought more. Cherry cola, bright, roses on the nose, elegant and smooth. So enjoyable. Actually surprised it's from Sta Rita Hills.

2012 vintage. Classic Melville. Right balance of spice, alcohol, and cherry. Drinking well but could stand about another 6 months to a year of additional aging.
