Winemaker Notes

Vivid crimson in color, opulent aromatics of strawberry preserves, clove and prickly pear are immediately noticeable. Rich and concentrated notes of duck plum sauce and red currants mingle with spiced hints of Garam Masala, green peppercorn and steeped green tea. The wine is fresh and lively, with superb grip and acidity that elevate the wine’s mid palate and frame its plush and harmonious finish.

Wine Enthusiast
Rusty red cherry, wild mint, turned earth and rainbow peppercorns show on the lovely nose of this bottling by Chad Melville from his family's property. The palate is extremely fresh and vibrant, with Bing cherry and plump hibiscus flavors at the core, dazzled by white pepper and olive tapenade on the fringes.
JD 94
Jeb Dunnuck
Terrific notes of red currants, underbrush/forest floor, and some savory, gamy notes emerge from the 2016 Pinot Noir Anna's, which is from clones 667 and 114. It's another wine that shines for its silky texture yet packs ample mid-palate depth as well as building structure and tannin. It's going to evolve beautifully for 10-15 years.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From vines planted in 2006, the 2016 Pinot Noir Anna's Block offers up aromas of cherry preserve, red berries, dried herbs and some whole-cluster spice on the upper register. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, supple and savory with a dry, saline and definitely stem-influenced finish. I'd give this a year or two in bottle to round out.

Melville, California
Melville Winery Video

There is no place on earth quite like the Sta. Rita Hills. The highly unusual east-west (or transverse) mountain range, close proximity to the cold Pacific, consistent coastal fog, and steady afternoon breezes together create ideal conditions for growing cold-climate Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Syrah. Ron Melville and his sons recognized that these exceptional conditions, combined with their commitment to “winegrowing,” would result in wines of remarkable quality. Melville Vineyards was established in 1996 in the heart of the Sta. Rita Hills and has since become one of the most highly-regarded estates in California.

With the guidance of Head Winegrower, Chad Melville, Melville’s full-time vineyard crew nurtures their 120 estate acres organically, paying close attention to the health of both the vines and the soil. Farming aggressively, yet carefully, and with the utmost respect to Mother Nature, helps encourage the vines to produce small amounts of intensely flavored/concentrated fruit. At the time of harvest, they consider the wines to already be made, and strive to not interfere with their natural path in the cellar. To this effect, they maintain a minimalist approach by aging their wines only in neutral French oak and stainless steel and utilize whole cluster fermentation to contribute to the depth, structure, and complexity of their wines.

A superior source of California Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Sta. Rita Hills is the coolest, westernmost sub-region of the larger Santa Ynez Valley appellation within Santa Barbara County. This relatively new AVA is unquestionably one to keep an eye on.

The climate of Sta. Rita Hills is a natural match for Chardonnay and Pinot noir, thanks to the crisp ocean breezes and well-drained, limestone-rich calcareous soil. Here, grapes ripen just enough, while retaining brisk acidity and harmonious balance.
