MELVILLE 2014 PINOT NOIR "TERRACES" SANTA RITA HILLS 750mL

From the west side of Melville's estate, the three undulating slopes of Terraces lie completely exposed to the elements facing severe wind pressure, several sun exposures and challenging drainage issues. This 4.9 acre block is planted on clay loam and limestone soils wrapping 120° around Carrie’s block. Five clones: Swan, Mount Eden, 115, 667 and 777, form a unique combination of old California Selections and newer dijonnaise clonal material.

Pale garnet in color, elements of orange zest, red apple skin and black tea emanate from the glass. With time, tender notes of rosewater, thyme and Chinese five-spice emerge alongside dusty components of lavender, fennel seed and dried tobacco. The palate impression is elegant, with well integrated stem tannins that frame the wine’s lengthy and generous finish.
