2011 Pinot Noir Savoy Vineyard Anderson Valley -- $55
Cherry blossom and rosewater perfume immediately abound from the glass on the 2011 Savoy Pinot Noir. Beautiful graphite, licorice and white pepper spice are also apparent. A velvety mouth feel leads straight into flavors of raspberry, cranberry tart and cocoa. The soft to medium tannin is almost pushed over by crisp firm acidity. This wonderful wine will hold extremely well over the next 6-7 years (2018-2019).
