Melville Winery and Vineyards is located in the Sta Rita Hills appellation of the Sta Ynez Valley in Lompoc, CA. This wine is made entirely of estate fruit and the fruit is composed of 7 different varietals of Syrah. Fermented whole cluster 60% destemmed total skin and stem contact was 30 days after which the wine was aged in neutral oak barrels. I found this wine to have a very pure taste profile with a good sweet taste of red and blue fruit and a little earthiness or bramble in the background that added savory flavors. RP 90, WS not rated.
