2008 Melville Pinot Noir Terraces

Community Tasting Note


89 Points

Saturday, March 9, 2013 - Dense, dark ruby color with slow-forming legs in the glass. Notes on bouquet of clove/allspice, baked fig, black cherry, cedar and hints of forest floor. The stem-driven earthiness that often shows on this bottling young has integrated, leaving a big ripe profile with bright dark cherry notes and loads of sweet and brown spice. Richly polished throughout, decent balance, and with a finely integrated structure. Spice and heat on a lengthy finish. Drink/hold.
