In 2013, the Scotto family produced a wine both to honor their 50th harvest in California and memorialize the family’s winemaking heritage, which originated in 1883 on the island of Ischia just off the Italian coast. First crafted with the 2011 vintage in Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District by Winemaker Paul Scotto, the 50 Harvests transformed into a true Meritage blend reflecting the model of Old World Bordeaux in 2014, when Scotto teamed up with fellow winemaker Mitch Cosentino. The family’s five-generation history of viticulture culminates in the 2014 50 Harvests Meritage, making it The Tasting Panel’s “Generational Gem” of 2018. Vivid, fresh flavors of juicy plum and spice; tangy and nicely structured; a lovely, well-balanced effort. 92 —A.D.B., September 2018
