2017 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 our Savoy out when I am pouring it all day for customers in the market. The aroma on the 2017 Savoy is captivating with sexy rose petal and dried leaf components complementing the iron, dark cherry, and red apple skin flavors. The mid palate is fresh with medium body and silky but light tannins. This is an incredibly easy wine to love and is pleasurable right now and will be for the next 10+ years.
Reviews for this wine
The 2017 Pinot Noir Savoy Vineyard is a pretty wine, and also the most approachable of this range. Crushed flowers, sweet red berries, cedar and spice are all laced together in a mid-weight, gracious Pinot. The Savoy suffers by comparison to the estate wines.
