2015 District 7 Estate Grown Monterey Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $14.27, screwcap. Estate grown, produced and bottled by Scheid Family Wines, Greenfield, CA. Label refers to Monterey County which is District 7 among the 17 California grape crush districts. The Scheid family has been sustainably farming land in California for nearly 50 years. · Moderately light ruby red color in the glass. There is a whack of oak on the nose that dominates the cherry aroma. Elegantly styled, but lacking depth and length, with plenty of toasty oak obscuring Pinot’s delicate character. Score: 85.
