Arroyo Seco (“Dry Creek”), a sub-appellation of the Monterey AVA, enjoys a cool climate, producing an extended growing season (often 2 to 4 weeks longer than Napa Valley). This additional hang time allows for greater fruit ripening and brighter acidity. The Estate’s vineyards, inland from Big Sur, have deep, gravelly soils, ideal for opulent Pinot Noir cultivation. This unique combination of soil and climate produces relatively small berries with intense, concentrated flavors.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair our Scott Family Estate Pinot Noir with hearty and richly flavored dishes like paté, or a portobello burger.
