Producer notes: "100% Melville estate fruit and a collection of 16 Pinot Noir clones. 40% whole clusters. Red rose petal in color, lively and vivid aromatics of raspberry, black cherry, fresh cranberry sauce, blood orange and nori waft from the glass. In the background, dried sage, basil powder and talc weave alongside a hint of cinnamon and orange rind. The mouthfeel is polished with soft, bright acidity and focused, silky, assertive tannins on the finish that add gorgeous earthy components and complexity."

Not yet reviewed; 2019 vintage rated 95 points and 'Editors' Choice' by Wine Enthusiast: "Fresh and open aromas of strawberry sorbet, pomegranate and plum draw the nose into this bottling, but it's the black-tea and dewy pine-needle aspects that hold the attention. Tremendous energy bursts forth on the sip, full of incense and forest herbs that bolster the delicious wild, just-plucked cherry and other red-fruit flavors. Alcohol 13.9%."
