Review: 2017 Scott Family Estate Pinot Noir Arroyo Seco Dijon Clone

Scott Family’s 2015 pinot noir was a bit of an outlier, beefy and aggressive. Two vintages later, this wine is exhibiting a much brighter and more iconic pinot noir profile, with bold cherry notes balanced by ample baking spices, particularly nutmeg and cinnamon, and a touch of almond. The finish is a bit drier and tannic than the front of the wine, though the cherry element remains a strong through-line. Very Russian River-like in its construction, and a very good value at this price level.
