2021 vintage notes
The 2021 Cuvée Ruth brings elegance to the forefront, showing generous red fruit notes and layered with floral and mineral depth which balance the power that the individual sites famously achieve, giving this wine an overall polish evoked by blending. These iconic vineyards are a blend of multiple clones of Pinot Noir and some of our oldest vines, allowing the wine to demonstrate a refined purity associated with classic Eola-Amity Hills.
A Blend of Justice, Sojeau, XNovo, and Witness Tree Vineyards.
When we began Walter Scott, we launched the winery with our savings and a few small loans from our family. One of those loans came from Erica's mother, Elizabeth Anne McKinnon, the avid trout fisherwoman above. People thought we were crazy to start a winery with virtually nothing, but lucky for us Erica’s mom believed in our dream too.
In 2012, our wonderful friends, Sue and Andy Steinman, became our partners in Walter Scott. With Sue and Andy’s help, we were able to continue to grow our little winery to something we are really proud of today. Cuvée Ruth is named after Sue's mother Ruth, the elegant woman pictured above in black & white. Cuvée Ruth is dedicated to the memory of Ruth and her husband Irv Kantor, a tribute to Sue & Andy for helping us to realize our dreams.
We chose the names Cuvée Anne and Cuvée Ruth as tributes to our two moms. These special cuvée's remind us we are able to do what we love because of the love and support of the people who believe in us.
