Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from the Savoy Vineyard in Anderson Valley is impressive. It opens with a fragrant red plum bouquet with a hint of strawberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, smooth and savory. The flavor profile is a very tasty red plum with notes of strawberry and gentle minerality. I also detected hints of red raspberry as well. The finish is dry and its refined acidity and flavors linger and last for quite a while for a Pinot. I would suggest pairing this very nice Pinot with grilled salmon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: 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.
