“From Martini, Pommard, 115 and Calera clones and a site in Anderson Valley, the 2015 Pinot Noir Savoy saw 10% whole clusters and spent 16 months in 40% new French oak. The soils here are slightly more gravelly and river deposits, with the defining feature of the site being dramatic diurnal swings common in Anderson Valley. Violets, Bing cherries, hints of blue fruits, and ample earthy minerality give way to medium-bodied, sulky, pure, elegant Pinot Noir that has terrific tension and elegance. As with most of these 2015s from Eric, a cool cellar is going to be your friend.”
