Melville Estate Pinot Noir Block M 2020


What I can say is that Melville’s wines are perennial winners – almost preying on vintage variations in weather as opposed to having to react to them.

Founded by Ron Melville and winemaker Greg Brewer (Clifton-Brewer), the two built a little dynasty in the heart of Sta. Rita Hills. Year in year out, the duo produced wines consistently scored in the mid-90s by EVERY wine publication. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate wrote that they are “continually blown away by what Melville Winery puts in a bottle”. Wine & Spirits Magazine has included them on their list of Top 100 wineries… in the World!

With Ron’s son, Chad the head of winemaking, Melville’s winery has reached never before seen heights. Case in point, the new release of their ‘Block M’ Pinot Noir that was just met with a HUGE 97-point rave review from none other than Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. They called this, “intensely concentrated” and added that it,  “boasts fine, chalky tannins, mouthwatering acidity and loads of detail emerging on the long finish.” They also ended the review with one word: Wow! I had a sample earlier this week at the restaurant… lights out good.

97 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2020 Pinot Noir Block M is beautifully expressive this vintage, with very pretty scents of blackberry, raspberry and pomegranate with wafts of tar, lavender, prosciutto, mushrooms and blood orange. The medium-bodied palate is intensely concentrated and boasts fine, chalky tannins, mouthwatering acidity and loads of detail emerging on the long finish. Wow!
