2016 Peay Vineyards Savoy Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley
The Savoy Pinot noir is the most easy-going and fruit-oriented of our single vineyard Pinot noirs fully capturing the qualities that have made Savoy one of the greatest Pinot noir vineyards in the New World. Though our interpretation might be a touch less hedonistic than most producers of this wine, there is a certain come hither quality I find very compelling. I often have trouble spitting out Savoy when I am pouring it all day for customers in the market. It is 5 p.m. somewhere in the world, I say. The 2016 Savoy features an apple brown betty base note with hibiscus and cherry blossom aromas accenting. The flavors in the mouth are captivating with deep red fruit like a bing or maraschino cherry rolled in brown spices and candied orange with a broad, fleshy mid-palate. An orange, raspberry, and a slight metallic tang linger on the medium length finish. Delicious and seamless this wine will age beautiful and is showing very well on release.
