Situated at 1600 feet elevation, with a commanding south-east facing view of Anderson Valley, Rich Savoy’s vineyard off of Deer Meadows Road above Boonville is meticulously farmed in multiple blocks that are planted in a northwest orientation. The color is medium ruby, and the aromas open up to prominent red fruits and a touch of sandalwood, as well as subtle spice notes like clove, cumin and cinnamon. The palate is packed with pomegranate, alpine strawberry, cocoa powder and cedar. On the finish, the wine shows lively acidity, intense flavors and fine-grained tannins.

92 points, Wine & Spirits: "hues of cherry, cherry meat, black-cherry skin and raspberry...the structure holds it tense, dynamic and pretty."
