2007 Scheid Vineyards Reserve Monterey County Pinot Noir
390 cases, $50. · Moderately light rouge color. Veers to the ripe side but the aromas and flavors are intriguing with notes of strawberries, raspberries, red currants and rhubarb with hints of raisin and brioche. Mild dry tannins, soft in the mouth, with some persistence on the finish. Reviewed January 27, 2011 ARTICLE »
