We visited with Scheid Family Wines’ Metz Road pinot noir, hailing from Monterey County, last year. Now we’re back with a look at the 2020 release.
The 2020 release is just a tiny bit more engaging than last year’s flabbier offering, kicking off with some citrus notes that lead the way to a beefy, somewhat brooding body. Some licorice gives the back end an herbal quality that pairs interestingly with its tart, slightly immature quality, though as with the 2019, the wine feels like it still has some growing to do, coming across as just a little unripe today.
