Monterey is Pinot Noir country. The land, weather and soil all conspire to create stunning Pinot Noirs that are perfect for your dinner table, and where our Estate Pinot Noir is grown. The vibrant ruby color of our Pinot Noir showcases intense flavors of wild strawberry, cherry, red raspberry and currant notes. There are back notes of pomegranate, sweet vanilla and earthy herbal hints, framed by a quiet but strong acidity, which supports the fully integrated fruit. The result? This a decisive Monterey County Pinot Noir that reflects the land it is grown on and our family’s dedication to making world class wine.

Wine Profile
Vineyard
Pinot Noir is thought to be the oldest cultivated variety of the genus Vitis, with records showing it was grown by the Romans in the 1st century AD in the Burgundy region of France. At Scheid, we grow Pinot Noir exclusively within the cool climate areas of Monterey County, locales that are comparable to Burgundy and present ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noir.
Varietal Composition
100% Pinot Noir
Winemaking
The grapes for this wine were hand harvested and then destemmed into small, one and a half-ton fermenter bins. During fermentation, we gently punched down the cap two times per day to gently extract color, tannins and flavor from the grape solids. The wine was then racked clean to 100% French oak barrels for secondary fermentation and aged for 14 months.
