Notes of chocolate-covered cherries, crème de cassis, molten licorice and preserved plums with hints of espresso, sauteed herbs and crushed rocks. The medium to full-bodied palate is packed with taut, muscular black fruit and supported by a firm foundation of grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing on a lingering ferrous note.
Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate.
A total stunner. Silky yet potent, with tremendous depth, the Melanson captures all the best this site had to give in 2018. Savory herb, leather, spice, rose petal, tobacco and incense all saturate the palate. It is vivid and exceptionally beautiful.
Antonio Galloni, Vinous.
A killer bouquet of crushed stone, new leather, flowery incense, blackberries, and blackcurrants. Already complex and nuanced aromatically, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a seamless, expansive texture, plenty of ripe tannins, and a great finish.
