The 2015 Pinot Noir Estate Scallop Shelf is dense, powerful and also quite tannic. Readers will have to be patient with the 2015, as it is massively tannic and structured. Dark cherry, plum, tobacco and licorice give the wine its personality. This is a distinctly virile vintage for the Scallop Shelf. Time in bottle will help the Scallop Shelf come together, but I imagine it will always retain some of the gravitas it shows today.
