Ships in time for Christmas! SAVE OVER $26 A BOTTLE on the Scott Family Estate Arroyo Seco Dijon Clone Pinot Noir while you can.
As promised, we’re back with another Christmas splurge, although this time our discount is so big on this $45 wine that it doesn’t even fall into Saturday Splurge (over $20) territory!
Earthy, fruity, smooth, herbal – this one has all kinds of layers to enjoy and it goes great with food too. Made primarily from Dijon Clones 667 and 777, along with a little 115, the wine comes from estate vineyards in the cool-climate Arroyo Seco AVA and spends 10 months in French and American oak.
Here’s how the winery describes the vintage and vineyards on this 100% Pinot Noir:
Arroyo Seco (“Dry Creek”), a sub-appellation of the Monterey AVA, enjoys a cool climate, producing an extended growing season (often 2 to 4 weeks longer than Napa Valley). This additional hang time allows for greater fruit ripening and brighter acidity. The Estate’s vineyards, inland from Big Sur, have deep, gravelly soils, ideal for opulent Pinot Noir cultivation. This unique combination of soil and climate produces relatively small berries with intense, concentrated flavors.
The 2019 growing season in Arroyo Seco was picture perfect with long, cool mornings that gave way to mild afternoon sunshine with a daily breeze coming from the Monterey Bay that allowed for extended hang time and flavor development and intensity of the fruit.
While we couldn’t find any other ratings on the 2019, the 2018 vintage of this wine received 93 points from Wine Enthusiast. We think the 2019 is easily in that same category, and we put it at the high end of our 9 Taste Rating (93 points).
And like we mentioned, today’s discount on this $45 wine can’t be beat…

Produced & Bottled by Scott Family Estate
The 2019 Scott Family Estate Arroyo Seco Pinot Noir opens with a beautiful, complex Pinot Noir aroma. Full of black cherry, cola, cranberry, rhubarb, tomato plant, wintergreen, forest floor and even more, there’s lots to discover here.
Amazingly all those components from the nose are also present when tasting, and they combine quite harmoniously. Earthy and fruity with some nice touches of spice as well, this is really pleasing to drink. Add in a smooth mouthfeel, good acidity and good depth on the fruit and this is top notch stuff.
It ends dry and long was just as good on day two. Excellent!
