2009 Scott Family Estate Dijon Clone Pinot Noir Arroyo Seco CA 14.9% $24

A fair amount of spice graces the nose here, imbuing the jammy raspberry fruit with hints of cinnamon and dried citrus rind notes. There’s obvious sweet and toasty oak, but overall this has a rather holiday aroma. Big and a bit soft, there’s plenty of alcohol here and some bitter wood tannins that add a dark spice note to the dark cherry and strawberry jam notes on the palate. This is big and, for my palate, a bit too ripe, but it maintains good balance. This flavor profile will appeal to some.  87pts
