Melville and their talented winemaker Greg Brewer (Brewer Clifton & Diatom) continue to nail it with amazingly good wines at a great prices. This new release is even more interesting than last years, and 2007 was a great vintage! So you can get this wine now before other critics chime in and know you are getting a fantastic deal and wine. For your hard earned dollar, this is one of the best Pinots you can get, especially this vintage, as it has layers of rich fruit and silky classic Pinot texture, plus it is just plain sexy. Lush, full and focused wine with grenadine, cherry, cola and raspeberry cream ending with tea spices and sweet vanilla! ($26 Est.) 92+ Points, grapelive
