100% Melville estate fruit from our Los Alamos estate. Melville Pinot Noir from the Verna Estate is very bright and food-friendly in the 2012 vintage. Red fruit aromas of cherry, plum skin and red berry fruit mix with hints of red tea, cinnamon stick and tobacco.


AG 90 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - The 2012 Pinot Noir Verna's is the most accessible of the 2012 Pinots from Melville. Crushed flowers, mint and rose petals meld into bright red berries in a feminine, gracious wine to drink over the next few years. The use of stems is more moderate here than in most of the other Melville Pinots, yet the wine remains quite floral and lifted in style. A soft, silky finish rounds things out nicely.


Tasting Notes - Soft magenta in color, rich aromatics of cherry pie filling, orange tea, cocoa powder and rosehip oil mingle with herbal touches of fresh thyme, fennel grass and eucalyptus. Other components of cranberry compote, fish oil and roasted red beets flirt in the background. The palate impression is high toned and feminine finishing with grip and persistence. Rated 90+
