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.
Spicy red cherry, clove
and vanilla notes.
Cherry flavors with floral and
black tea notes.
Cellar temperature—the bottle should be
cool to the touch.
