Adrian Fog Pinot Noir Anderson Valley Savoy Vineyard 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Five clone blend. By blending five clones we are able to achieve both depth and complexity. The 114 clone off the terrace is harvested first and yields fresh red fruit flavors. The 115 clone from the front of the vineyard on heavy soil offers deep blue fruit and weight. Martini and Wadensville clones produce spice and complexity. And the Pommard clone has an overall benefit of weight and flavor adding rich earth characteristics. Ripe cherry and blueberries bounce in the nose as soft persimmon and earth rest in the background of this complex Pinot Noir. Produced by natural fermentation using only free run juice. Bottled unfined, unfiltered. Cellar for 5 - 7 years. 320 cases produced.

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

The fog is one of the best wines around! be careful however the lightness one tastes at first sip can be deceiving, as this is a full bodied heavy wine sip slowly :)

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.

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.

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.

The 2004 Pinot Noir Savoy Vineyard possesses blue fruits and floral notes in its medium-bodied personality. Tangy acidity, considerable complexity, and an artisinal style emerge from this beauty. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2004 Adrian Fog Pinot Noir Savoy Vineyard 750ml

The deep ruby-colored 2003 Pinot Noir Savoy Vineyard offers notes of plum pudding intermixed with flowers, fresh mushrooms, forest floor, and sweet cherries.
