Melville Terraces Pinot Noir 2013
|Region||California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills|
Wine AdvocateStill slightly closed, with a focused, streamlined feel on the palate, the 2013 Pinot Noir Terraces offers a pretty and lively bouquet of sweet berry fruits, spring flowers, mint and sappy herbs. Medium-bodied, elegant and pretty, with a core of sweet fruit, it never really expands on the palate, but finished with superb length. Reminding me of a Solomon Hills release given its vibrant fruit profile, it certainly gives up plenty of pleasure, but it will benefit from a year or so in the cellar.
