Distinctive flavors of black pepper, game, smoke, licorice, tobacco and game.
Aromas of feminine black and blue fruit liqueurs, smoky Indian spices, violets, and minerals. High acid with fleshy, smooth offering of ripe cassis and mulberry flavors. Long, sweet, focused finish, which is framed by chewy, slow-building tannins.
Beef carpaccio, Seared tuna with black sesame, smoked meats and cheeses.
Once again, the 2012 Syrah Turner Vineyard is the star of the show at Melville. An exotic mélange of blood orange, violets and spices makes a strong first impression. Deep and beautifully layered on the palate, the Turner offers superb depth and plenty of tannin to back it up. An explosive, vibrant finish only adds to the wine's considerable appeal. This is a real head-turner from SAMsARA and proprietor Chad Melville.Vinous August 2015
Glass-staining purple. Displays powerful aromas of black and blue fruit liqueurs, smoky Indian spices, violet and minerals, with a sexy floral quality in the background. Fleshy and smooth, offering ripe cassis and mulberry flavors that gain sweetness with air. The blue fruit note repeats on the very long, sweet, focused finish, which is framed by chewy, slow-building tannins.Steven Tanzer December 2014
