A very contrasty pinot with sliced orange, strawberry, white pepper, and other spices. It's medium-bodied and manages to show ripe fruit in the center palate but turns energetic and racy at the end. Drink or hold.
Wine Tasting Notes
The elegant and abundant aromatics hit immediately with freshly cooked cranberry sauce, red English rose and dried orange zest. On the palate, the fruit and floral notes are reminiscent of the nose, with an additional layer of black tea, Meyer lemon and that iconic ocean spray found in many past vintages. Melville Estate Terraces Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir is tied together perfectly with fine sandy-grain tannins and luscious acidity. Pair Terraces with blackened rock cod tacos or a BLT for an unexpected twist!
