2008 Bonaccorsi Melville Vineyard Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir (Was $50) 750ml

Bonaccorsi Wine Company produces limited quantities of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah rendered in the style and spirit of a small Burgundy domaine. Grape sources are selected carefully from cool areas of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties in California's South Central Coast. Current grape sources include Sanford & Benedict Melville, and Fiddlestix Vineyards in the newly created Santa Rita Hills appellation, and Bien Nacido and Le Bon Climat Vineyards in Santa Maria Valley. At the winery, grapes and wine are handled carefully and minimally in an effort to capture and enhance the combination of grape variety and site. Bonaccorsi's objective is to produce wines that combine concentration with delicacy.

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 94

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: My favorite of the group is the 2008 Pinot Noir Melville Vineyard. An expressive nose of sweet earth, fruitcake, forest floor, blueberries, and black raspberries is terrific. Broad, fleshy, and spicy, this medium to full-bodied wine has a seamless integration of all its component parts. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.

WINE ENTHUSIAST RATING: 93

WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: A burst of black cherry fruit and spice announces this rich, complex young Pinot. Shows great structure in the fine tannins, brisk acids and firm minerality. Brims with power and assertiveness, and should develop over the next six years.

WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 93

WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Combines ripe, supple, delicate plum and blueberry fruit that's elegant, fleshy, rich, layered and full-bodied, ending with a lift that accentuates the tender fruit flavors. Drink now through 2016.
