On a stunning hillside vineyard located northwest of Philo, Savoy's Pinot Noir grapes develop intense flavor over a growing season lengthened by the cooling maritime influence that funnels through the Anderson Valley. A complex patchwork of clonal selections, each block is farmed to its own specific needs. Hand-picked in the early morning and trucked to the cellar while the fruit is cold allows for optimum handling and whole berry integrity. Savoy is the Pinot darling of 2010, with healthy, beautiful fruit harvested in multiple passes late September through early October. This bottling exhibits noble character, drinking well now yet displaying great potential for a patient cellarer.

“A medium register nose displays notes of both red and blue pinot fruit that are attractively laced with spice and floral hints. There is impressive volume to the rich and utterly delicious medium-bodied flavors that possess an abundance of palate soaking dry extract with really lovely depth and finishing persistence. There is good body, size and weight and I would place this between the La Neblina and the Laguna in terms of power and concentration. There is a touch of warmth as well as a bit of wood on the finish but both are quite subtle and overall, I quite like this as itís a fine combination of power and refinement.”— Allen Meadows
THE WINE ADVOCATE #199, February 2012
“The 2010 Pinot Noir Savoy is another gorgeous, beautifully expressive wine. This is the most layered, complete and nuanced of the 2010 Pinots from Radio-Coteau. There is a silkiness to the tannin that elevates the Savoy. This is all subtlety and class. Freshly cut flowers, rose petals, exotic spices and ripe raspberries wrap around the soft, creamy finish. I canít wait to taste this once it is in bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2021. ” — Antonio Galloni
