On a stunning hillside vineyard located northwest of Philo, Savoy's Pinot Noir grapes develop intense flavor over a growing season lengthened by the cooling maritime influence that funnels through the Anderson Valley. A complex patchwork of clonal selections, each block is farmed to its own specific needs. Hand-picked in the early morning and trucked to the cellar while the fruit is cold allows for optimum handling and whole berry integrity.
"Deep, bright ruby. A complex bouquet displays scents of black raspberry, kirsch, potpourri and smoky minerals. Pliant red and dark berry flavors are framed by silky tannins and pick up a deeper cola quality with air. The dark berry notes dominate the impressively pure and seductively sweet finish. I wouldn't hesitate to drink this now, but expect that it will reward another five years or so of patience."

"The 2007 Pinot Noir Savoy Vineyard exhibits deep raspberry, blueberry, and boysenberry notes with hints of clove and spring flowers. It is medium-bodied, elegant, and fresh, with lovely fruit and texture."
