Aromatic waves of black cherry, pomegranate, and boysenberry fill the glass of this elegantly concentrated wine. Subtle notes of anise, black tea leaves, and redwood needles add further depth and complexity to the nose. The weight and concentration of this heady wine is immediately apparent in the mouth, with dense layers of black fruit, pencil shavings, and hints of cocoa. The velvet-like tannins provide structure that is punctuated by a refreshingly acidic finish that lingers in the mouth for several minutes. This wine will age gracefully for a full decade or more.

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 in three picks on August 20th, 24th, and September 14th at an average of 24.1° 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 ten day extended maceration. The wine was aged fifteen months in 60-gallon French oak barrels, 47% of which were new. Coopers include Cadus, Quintessence, Rousseau, François Frères and Sirugue.
