The Scallop Shelf has evolved over the last 15 years into the most mineral-driven and understated of our Pinot noirs. The 2021 is perfectly proportioned and harmonious with aromas of sassafras, wet slate, and apple skin with a floral and savory note popping in and out. The elements of the wine are already remarkably well-integrated with notes of cedar, forest floor, and ras el hanout spice framing the fruit. The finish is bright and the flavors go on and on. A wonderful Scallop Shelf from a superb vintage.

Jeb Dunnuck: 99 pts. Medium-bodied and more tension driven, it’s taut with orange zest, clove, and gravelly, saline earth.

Vinous/Galloni: 96 pts. Focused, bristles with saline energy and tension.

Robert Parker: 96 pts. The medium-bodied palate has a frame of chalky tannins and fireworks of fresh acidity. Despite its lifted character, it's bursting with floral fruit and has a long, perfumed finish.
