Wine & Spirits Awards Savoy Pinot Noir 92 Points


92 Points | 2009 Benovia Savoy Vineyards Pinot Noir

"From a famed vineyard northwest of Philo, a protected, relatively warm site in the cool end of the Anderson Valley, this wine is powerful when first opened and hard to approach. With a day of air, the perfumed cherry and oak scents meld into earthiness, still potent but now more mineral than bluntly oaked. With another day, the fruit reveals floral and spice notes, deep and cool, with the fat of a ripe cherry. A complex wine, this requires bottle age and should reward six to eight years in the cellar."
