Jim and Emjay (MJ) Scott are refugee artists (they call themselves “aging hipsters”) that escaped San Francisco in 1989 and settled in Potter Valley. They carefully nurse their five acre organically farmed vineyard (first planted in the late 1990s), handle all of their own sales and promotion and even hand deliver the wine to local accounts. The Naughty Boy label proudly portrays the Scotts’ faithful winery dog Little Ricky. The winemaker is Gregory Graziano who also farms his own vineyard in Potter Valley. The Pinot Noirs are distinctive and different and definitely worth a look. The wines are sold on the website.

2005 Naughty Boy Potter Valley Mendocino County Pinot Noir

13.7% alc., 477 cases. · Interesting aromatics of wild berries, allspice, herbs and oak char. More red fruits and less tannin than the 2004 vintage. The panoply of exotic fruit and spices is soft and the presentation is elegant. Tangy acidity wraps up a clean finish. This is a mysterious Pinot Noir of unusual breeding that is hard to pin down. I never have tasted anything quite like it and applaud its uniqueness. Reviewed February 18, 2008 ARTICLE »
