Melville 2019 Pinot Noir "M Block"

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

"Medium ruby, the 2019 Pinot Noir Block M has beautiful scents of strawberry and raspberry jam, tangerine peel, tea and tobacco leaves with touches of iodine. The medium-bodied palate is broody and layered, with earthy bass tones and sweet berry perfume, and it finishes very long and fragrant." Robert Parker 95 Points

"Brick-black-raspberry-jam aromas are cut by pine needle, damp herbs and wet cement on the nose of this bottling. The palate packs fresh cranberry with seared orange-rind flavors, as hints of sage and pine linger into the finish." Wine Enthusiast 95 Points

"The 2019 Pinot Noir Block M was 33% destemmed and saw the usual élevage all in very old barrels. Coming from clone 114 and 115, it reveals a medium-bodied, supple, lightly textured style as well classic Melville salinity and marine-like influences in its dark cherry and raspberry fruits as well as notes of iron, decayed flowers, stems, and baking spices. I love its overall balance, the purity of fruit is spot on, it has ripe tannins, and it’s going to keep for at least a decade." Jeb Dunnuck 94 Points
