2014 Recherché Reserve Pinot Noir - Deer Meadows Vineyard
Richard Savoy is well known in Anderson Valley. The Savoy Vineyard has been producing great Pinot Noir for some time now. A few years back, Richard sold the famed Savoy Vineyard but kept his hillside vineyard and home, located high above the Anderson Valley floor.
We love the combination of Swan, Dijon 667 and Calera clones from the highest elevation blocks on the site. The classic richness of the Swan clone, with the bright pomegranate and cranberry flavors from the Dijon 667 clone, develop a delicate balance of flavors. The Calera selection adds weight, earthiness and longevity to the mix.
This wine has tremendous aging potential but shows great balance today. It is our belief that a wine that begins with balance will stay in balance throughout its life. This wine has a very long life ahead of it. You will want to see how this one develops over the years.
