Savoy 2018

This is a classic Peay Savoy Pinot noir, really capturing the friendliness and grace of wines made from this vineyard. The nose features Bing and red cherry fruit aromas accented by smoky, velvety notes. A little bit of a Luxardo maraschino cherry smell sits deeper in the glass. On the palate a hint of sarsaparilla and clove combine with the aromas from the nose and linger on a long finish.
Reviews for this wine

95 – Erin Brooks – The Wine Advocate

The 2017 Pinot Noir Savoy Vineyard is broody with scents of crushed blackberries, rhubarb and blood orange accented by mint and oolong tea leaves and fragrant earth. The light to medium-bodied palate is delicately styled but well-concentrated with earth- and oral-tinged fruits and bursts of bright freshness on the long, layered finish. A very classic Anderson Valley expression.

92 – Antonio Galloni – Vinous

The 2018 Pinot Noir Savoy Vineyard is bold, racy and immediate, as wines from this site tend to be. Super-ripe red cherry, red plum and spice notes all race out of the glass in this succulent, wonderfully inviting Pinot. There is so much to like here, including the wine’s sheer fruit presence.

Savoy 2018

Description

The 44-acre vineyard was planted by Richard Savoy in 1991 and the current owners, FEL, have re-planted and continue to invest in the quality of the vineyard. We are quite pleased to make a Savoy under our Peay label and the wine nicely complements our line-up of estate wines having a touch more fruit forwardness and is more approachable in its youth. Further, the Peay Savoy is a little different than other expressions of Savoy as there is often a floral component in the wine and you will recognize Vanessa’s steady, focused hand on the rudder of the wine. A delicious expression of California Pinot noir.
