About the Wine
“Is it possible to love a wine region to death? Sometimes it seems that way with Sonoma's Russian River Valley.” ~ Wine Spectator
Russian River Valley is a highly-esteemed AVA in Sonoma Wine Country. Thanks to the versatility of this region, this “remarkable place to grow wine” (just like Wine Spectator named it) is home to some of the most treasured and compelling Pinot Noirs in the country.
Everything about Russian River Valley screams greatness; the perfect combination between the location that is close to the Pacific Ocean, the sandy loam soil which is composed of fractured sandstone, and the fresh climate, is what allows the perfect growth of cool-climate grapes like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, delivering charming, structured, and silky wines.
Melissa and her husband Mark founded Melissa Kelly Wines in 2007. Mark is a recognized winemaker with a long history in the California wine industry; His winemaking trajectory includes some of the most renowned wineries in the region like Turley Wine Cellars, Robert Mondavi, and Williams Selyem.
2013 Melissa Kelly Pinot Noir is an insane wine offer! Thanks to our wine experts, who are constantly in the search for the best value wines, we found this offer that will come just once in a lifetime: High-class Pinot, 95 Point Vintage from one of the most exciting AVAs in California at a 60% discount. Doesn’t get any better than this!
Tasting Notes: 100% Pinot Noir. Pleasing aromas of strawberry, cherry, cola, and red licorice. On the palate, it is fresh and juicy with a smooth mouthfeel, great balance, and perfect acidity. Long and exciting finish. This wine is ready to drink, and is already fully mature with tertiary flavors of dried leather, tobacco leaf, and black tea. Some of our favorite Pinot pairing suggestions are grilled salmon or tuna, cheese and cold-cuts platter, lamb, pork, or grilled veggies.
