Adrian Fog Pinot Noir Anderson Valley Savoy Vineyard 2006

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

The most backward offering is the 2006 Pinot Noir Savoy Vineyard. Blueberry, raspberry, forest floor, and violet notes make an appearance in this medium dark ruby-colored Pinot. There is sweet fruit on the attack, but the acidity and tannin quickly kick in, and the finish is tight and restrained. Another 6-12 months of bottle age should reveal even more character. This is a purely made wine that captures the elusive nature of this varietal.

Adrian Fog was born from the idea that Pinot Noir should have a sense of place and that the vineyard is the birthplace of great wine. All of our vineyards are selected for their individuality. By hand selecting cool climate fruit from small vineyards, Adrian Fog is able to maintain the unique signature and personality of the vineyard. Each vineyard is selected by considering the effect of coastal fog patterns, clonel differences, age and vine orientation to the sun. Picking, fermentation and barrel ageing are done by keeping all clones and blocks separately. By this madness, we are able to learn and appreciate each wine's nuances and style intimately. Our bottlings are determined by the wine's individuality, our largest bottling is 330 cases and the smallest is 23 cases. Picking, racking, and bottling are scheduled as close to the night of the full moon as possible. We have found that she (Adrian Fog) likes and enjoys the effects of the lunar cycle. We encourage you to drink Adrian Fog on the night of a full moon to enjoy her full seductive essence. Read less

Adrian Fog produces some of California's most compellingly complex, aromatic Pinots. The 2005 Pinot Noir Savoy Vineyard is reminiscent of a premier or grand cru from Burgundy's village of Morey-St.-Denis. Forest floor, fresh mushroom, spearmint, plum, root beer, and strawberry characteristics are found in this soft, medium to full-bodied, round effort. Enjoy this sensational Pinot over the next 3-4 years.

Intense and well-proportioned, with a tight beam of spicy cherry and berry flavors that are rich and floral, ending with firm tannins. Gains complexity and depth on the finish. Drink now through 2011.
