Scott Family Estate Pinot Noir Arroyo Seco Dijon Clone 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lots of crushed blackberries and clay greet the nose followed by some spicy oak and barbecue sauce nuances. Pretty bright and fresh on entry with very fine-grained, stiff tannins underpinning a rather big if slightly blousey core of blueberry fruit. This shows off a bit of spice on the mid-palate, which remains quite dry and firm. Gains some cashew nut nuances on the back end that melt into oak and red currant fruit on the moderately long, slightly hot finish. A big, fairly simple wine but a little hollow in the mouth. 87pts

The estate vineyards were replanted with superior vines and the winery and Tasting Room have undergone significant renovations. Yet, the estate’s 100 year-old olive grove and unpretentious charm remain essentially unchanged. Read less
