2007 Adrian Fog Savoy Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 320 cases, $70. · Dark reddish-purple color in the glass. The nose is quite lovely initially showing plum and berry fruit with hints of oak and fennel. Over time, more floral aromas emerge, the fruit fades and a hint of alcohol appears. A medium-weighted wine with plum and blackberry fruit that is juicy, mineral-toned and earthy. Smoothly textured with minimal tannins, the wine’s firm acid backbone leads to a hi-strung, snappy finish. The most expensive Savoy bottling in 2007. Decent. Reviewed January 22, 2010
