Wine Enthusiast, Jim Gordon
"Bright, spicy new-oak aromas and flavors light up this full-bodied wine, and it delivers good, ripe cherry and black-plum flavors to balance out the oak. With a little time in the bottle the unique character of the Savoy vineyard should emerge."

Vibrant ruby in color, the 2017 Savoy Vineyard Pinot Noir opens with layers of perfumed aromas of lavender, blueberry, dark cherry, smoked paprika, and pennyroyal. On the palate, this wine is delicate in body with flavors of ripe cherry, violet, lavender, white pepper, and freshly turned earth. The finish is lengthy and balanced.

Vintage NotesThe 2017 growing season began with significant rainfall, replenishing soils and reservoirs. A summer of gradual warmth indicated a textbook growing season until unpredictable spells of extreme heat throughout September created challenges for many vineyards. This heightened the rate of ripening and flavor development in the grapes. Cooling marine air arrived just in time to bring our vineyards to ideal harvesting conditions resulting in concentrated, rich, and dense wines.
