Recommended wine: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc

Scallops works really well with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Chenin Blanc. Chardonnay and chenin blanc are great matches for grilled or seared scallops. If your scallops are being matched with bacon or other cured meats, try a lightly chilled pinot noir. The Raptor Ridge Estate Pinot Noir with a 4.4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 42 dollars per bottle.

This is a wine that is not coy or shy. The nose is outgoing with ripe cherry fruit, sweet pomegranate, and plum, with soft notes of clove cigar, and musk. The curvy palate is lush with red cherry, Italian plum, and Marionberries. Note the pleasing floral qualities of lavender, and brown spices like nutmeg, pepper, and chestnut. With astounding acidity, and polished tannins this wine will drink well through 2017. Enjoy with a wild mushroom risotto.
