About Savoy Vineyard:
On a stunning hillside vineyard located in the heart of Anderson Valley, Savoy’s Pinot Noir grapes develop intense flavor over a growing season lengthened by the cooling maritime influence that funnels through the valley. A complex patchwork of clonal selections, each block is organically farmed to its own specific needs. Hand-picked at night and trucked to the cellar in the early morning allows for optimum handling and whole berry integrity. 

Tasting Notes:
Morello cherry, fresh blackberry, and dark plum immediately coalesce around a gentle mint tea leaf complexity. The juicy, herbal entry is rounded by textured notes of leather and baking spice, with subtle hints of marzipan and citrus rind. Complementing the polished mouthfeel are well-integrated yet expressive tannins and a touch of acidity. The finish is alluring, with a restrained depth that hints at extended longevity.

Ratings & Reviews
92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"One of my favorites is the 2005 Pinot Noir Savoy, which has beautiful earthy, blueberry, and raspberry notes intermixed with spring flowers and forest floor. The wine has excellent texture, outstanding ripeness and precision, and a long, elegant finish. It could be mistaken for a premier cru Chambolle-Musigny." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (12/27/2007)

92 Points - Vinous Media:
"Dark red. Intensely perfumed aromas of ripe blackberry and cherry, complemented by exotic sandalwood and fresh rose. Ripe and dense but pure, with vibrant red and dark berry flavors, refreshing minerality and a suave toasty note. This is almost lavish in fruit expression, with a sweet floral pastille note on the long, silky finish. Compelling stuff, with the balance to age." - Stephen Tanzer (5/2007)

90 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Delicious ripe cherry, plum and wild berry fruit is supple and polished. Turns elegant and spicy and picks up a nice mineral, pebble edge. The tannins give the fruit nice traction." - JL (6/15/2007)
