Winemaker Notes

Red fruit aromas of cherry, plum skin and red berry fruit mix with hints of red tea, cinnamon stick and tobacco. Pretty floral notes of cherry blossom and red rose mingle with earthy notes of underbrush, fern and sage. The palate has a plush and vibrant texture expanding this complexity leaving the mouth satiated and complete.

Wine Enthusiast
Ripeness marks this Pinot. It floods the mouth with jammy raspberries and cherries, brightened with acidity. Seems a bit straightforward by virtue of sheer dazzle, but it is a superb example of the Santa Rita Hills, at a good price.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Pinot Noir Estate Verna-s floats on the palate with sweet dried cherries, herbs, mint and fennel, all of which come together in a refined, medium-bodied style that is highly appealing. In 2010, the Verna is all about finesse. A sweet, perfumed finish rounds things out nicely. This is a very pretty showing. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.

Melville The Story of 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.
