We are proud to introduce the first release of our Scott Family Estate 2006 Monterey Pinot Noir. This wine boasts attractive, intense aromas of ripe cherry, rich raspberry and cola intertwined with sage and vanilla. A full-bodied and well-balanced Pinot Noir with fresh fruit flavors of strawberry, cherry and cranberry.
Scott Family Pinot Noir is crafted from a blend of Dijon Clones grown on our estate in the Arroyo Seco appellation of Monterey County. This cool region in California provides a longer growing season that contributes to the complexity of flavor and fruit intensity of our Pinot Noir.
"Very clean, clean sparkling rose hue. Classic
varietal nose with cherry, leather, and light
tobacco fragrances. Rich and coating on a
silky entry with loads of buttery cherry fruit
and wonderfully integrated tannins. Tart and
tangy on the finish with mulberry, pepper,
and leather accents wrapped around a ribbon
of cherry-infused acids."
