Located on the Pacific Coast two hours north of San Francisco, Mendocino has become a hot spot for coolly refined Pinot Noir.
What You Need To Know
“NBV” stands for Naughty Boy Vineyards, which is a reference not to co-owner Jim Scott but to Ricky, a beloved boxer hound that belonged to Jim and wife Emjay. The Scotts are artists and former San Franciscans who spent weekends at their property in Mendocino’s remote Potter Valley. Higher than the rest of Mendocino, Potter Valley has warmer days and colder nights—attributes that helped make the grapes for this Pinot Noir perfectly ripe. It comes from a five-acre vineyard the Scotts planted on their property in the late ’90s. Smartly, the Scotts brought winemaker Greg Graziano on board to make the wine. Graziano is one of Mendocino’s top talents, with a deft hand for everything from Barbera to Pinot Noir.
