Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
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 20th and 27th and October 4th and 11th at an average of 24.0° Brix. It then went through a seven-day cold soak at 50°F, a nine-day primary fermentation, peaking between 90 and 94°F, and a five to seven day extended maceration.
Winemaker Notes
Loaded with enticing aromatics of black cherry, wild brambleberries, and Santa Rosa plum, the nose is furthered with hints of mint, sage, and redwood needles. Simultaneously intense and elegant in the mouth, flavors of black fruit mingle with hints of baking spices, wild herbs, and savory notes of cocoa and black pepper. The palate finishes with a delicate balance of bright acidity and fine-grained tannins. - Ryan Hodgins, Winemaker
