 Once again, the 2015 Pinot Noir Estate Block M is the most complex Pinot in the range. It is also the only Pinot where the fruit feels like it has three, rather than two, dimensions. Translucent and yet powerful, with plenty in reserve, the 2015 will need a few years to be at its best. Even so, it is impressive today. 93+ (AG)  (9/2017)

 Seeing plenty of whole cluster, the 2015 Pinot Noir Block M sports a lighter ruby color as well as lots of forest floor, mulled red fruits, spice and sandy/loamy notions. It has tons of salinity on the palate, plenty of tannin (they're ripe, however) and will benefit from short term cellaring. Melville Winery has some changes recently with the departure of winemaker Greg Brewer and Chad Melville taking over the winemaking helm. These 2015s are pretty much outstanding across the board, but show the difficulty in the vintage with lighter, racy profiles. (  (8/2017)
