96 Point Pinot Noir and only $50!!!

2013 Melville Pinot Noir Sandy's....$49.99 
I think one of the top two wines in Melville's Pinot Noir lineup, the 2013 Pinot Noir Sandy's is drop-dead gorgeous. Similar to the Terraces, with its sweet bouquet of raspberry and black raspberry fruits, toasted bread, spice-box and licorice, it hits the palate with lots of fruit and texture, yet is always elegant, seamless and incredibly layered, with sweet tannin lending length and cut to the finish. Mostly destemmed and aged 14 months in neutral oak, this is a big, fruit-filled Pinot that will be better this time next year and knock your socks off through 2025.
Rated 96/100 The Wine Advocate
