Our flagship Pinot Noir is always a reflection of the beautiful site from which the grapes are grown. Savoy Vineyard is perched above the Navarro River bench looking out at the last stand of old-growth redwoods in Anderson Valley. The wildness of the forest is reflected in the wine with aromas of conifer needles, native mint, and wild brambleberries. The nose also includes notes of black cherry, cedar, and cinnamon. Texturally, Savoy Pinot Noir is always a compelling wine with silky tannins that give great length to the mouth and support flavors of cherry, blackberry, and black tea.

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 four picks on September 5th and 30th at an average of 24.1° Brix. It then went through a seven-day cold soak at 50°F, a seven-day primary fermentation, peaking 92°F, and two to three days of extended maceration. The wine was aged sixteen months in 60-gallon French oak barrels, 30% of which were new. Coopers include Quintessence, Tremeaux, Cadus, and Sirugue.
