The 2020 Allan Scott Family Winemakers Pinot Noir is beautifully balanced from start to finish. This wine offers aromas and flavors of wild strawberries and a hint of chalk. Enjoy it with a flavorful lamb stew. (Tasted: October 21, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
On the richer, darker end of the spectrum, this well-priced Pinot offers powerful potpourri aromas that sit atop vibrant red fruit, savory spice and a sanguine character. Somewhat meaty, mealy oak lingers beneath. In the mouth, the red fruit and spice feel fresh, even if the acidity is a little sharp. Chiseled, savory tannins add some heft. This is still a baby and should age nicely over the next five to eight years.
This succulent Pinot Noir has aromas of spice, currant and dark Ghana chocolate. A juicy cherry mouthfeel matches perfectly with the grippy bitterness of the dark cocoa. A long and luxurious feel on the palate will remind you of your favourite cherry jam colliding with that warm dark cup of black tea.
