A sweet sage and cherry bouquet with notes of toasted oak and dark roasted coffee, with subtle flavors of dried cherry, vanilla, berries and fresh rosemary. Crisp acidity is balanced with robust tannins for a mouth-filling texture and long, luxurious finish. Richly textured with balanced acidity, silky tannins and a smooth, lingering finish. Enjoy this elegant Pinot Noir now or savor for the next ten years.

Vineyard Notes

The 2017 growing season started off with ample rain, which helped to replenish soils after 5 years of drought. The much-needed rainfall helped to generate healthy vine growth. Mild spring weather led to successful bloom and set of healthy grape clusters. Warmer temperatures in July helped to achieve full ripeness of the fruit. A heat wave in early September sped up ripening, but by the end of the month, it slowed back to normal as the temperatures cooled.

Food Pairing Notes

Pair our Scott Family Estate Pinot Noir with hearty and richly flavored dishes like pan-seared salmon, braised short ribs or a Parmesan portobello risotto.
