2011 Chardonnay Savoy Vineyard Anderson Valley -- $42
The 2011 Savoy Chardonnay is more fragrant than in previous years. Rose perfume, white pepper and fresh lilies fill the glass. This moves to butterscotch and red apples. Lush and silky on the mid-palette flavors of full cream custard; flint minerality and lemon rind come through. Fresh acid balances the lush palette. Fresh honey lingers on the finish. It is a bright wine which will be best over the next few years peaking after 4-5 (2016-2017).
