Always a wine of complexity and substance, the 2014 Savoy Pinot Noir is rich with notes of pine needles, forest floor, anise, and roasted tea which surround a core of black cherry, cola, and fresh fig. A delicate balance of silky tannins and fresh acidity support a rich palate, long on dark fruit flavors of blackcurrant and plum, with layers of allspice and crushed mint. This is a slow developing wine that will benefit greatly from a few years of bottle aging and continue to develop for at least a decade.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Our estate Savoy Vineyard, long recognized as a benchmark vineyard in Anderson Valley, is located in the “Deep End” of the valley, west of the town of Philo. The maritime influence and moderate daytime temperatures contribute to the wine’s elegant flavor profile and silky tannins. This wine is made of a blend of clones including several Dijon selections, Pommard, Martini, and Calera.
Production Notes
The fruit was harvested September 8th and 17th at an average of 24.3° Brix. It then went through a seven day cold soak at 50°F, a nine day uninoculated primary fermentation, peaking between 90 and 94°F, and a seven to fourteen day extended maceration. The wine was aged fifteen months in 60 gallon French oak barrels, 53% of which were new. Coopers include Cadus, Damy, Rousseau, François Frères and Sirugue.
