This label was started in 2008 by partners Ken Pahlow and Erica Landon after years of working in the Oregon Wine Industry. Pahlow has worked in sales and production at St. Innocent Winery and currently manages sales and distribution in the Northwest for Evening Land Vineyards. In 2009, he joined the harvest team at Patricia Green Cellars and the winery crew there helped launch the Walter Scott label. Landon has been a sommelier at several top Oregon restaurants. Both partners have been involved in the International Pinot Noir Celebration and the Salud Wine Auction for many years.
The 2009 Pinot Noir releases include a blend from three vineyards labeled La Combe Verte and two vineyard designate Pinot Noirs from Holstein Vineyard and Bishop Creek Vineyard. The wines are sold through a mailing list and fine wine retailers in Oregon.
Articles About Walter Scott
2011 Walter Scott La Combe Verte Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
13.5% alc., $23. · Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. Primarily aromas of charred oak and barnyard upon opening, revealing shy black cherry fruit over time in the glass. Mid weight core of darker red cherries and raspberries and pomegranates with firm tannins taking over the finish. Endowed with bright acidity. Noticeable oak in the background. This wine is out of sorts now with too much acidity, tannins and oak in the limelight. Perhaps more bottle aging will be beneficial but the balance is suspect. Decent.
