SCAR OF THE SEA PINOT NOIR "BLOCK Q - OLD VINE" BIEN NACIDO VINEYARD SANTA MARIA VALLEY 2013
NVWE Notes: Concentrated and focused on deep red fruits and sweet-savory spice, while showing plenty of backbone, this wine marks an impressive debut. The nose fans-out densely packed scents of Maraschino cherry, preserved Umeboshi plum, dried cranberry, dried red cherry, strawberry jam, red rose, sumac, sassafras, cola, star anise, pink peppercorn and sandalwood. Gutsy similar flavors, fine grip and impressive length are notable on the palate, where the impression of coiled young fruit never flags. Expect this tasty Pinot to get better for several years. 98 cases produced from 40 year old Pommard clone vines.
This wine's aromas are perfectly pretty but with a sharp edge, blending tight boysenberry, raspberry and red-apple with lilac and scarlet-red rose-petal florality and an anise-peppercorn spice. The palate is full, soft and yet focused, with dried strawberry, plum and red cherries giving way to pencil lead and sage. DATE PUBLISHED 12/31/2015 MATT KETTMANN
