Showing classic Savoy pedigree, the intensely colored wine features intensity and focus on the nose as well with fresh blueberry, black cherry, limestone, sage, milk chocolate and grilled meat aromas. Minty berry, cherry and chocolate flavors emanate from the expansive, lush midpalate. The finish, though elegant, still shows the cut of youth, with fine-grained tannins providing the structure for long-term cellaring. Drink through at least 2016.

Sussman also produces a Pinot Noir from the Savoy Vineyard. The 2007 Pinot Noir Savoy Vineyard seems very unformed, with sappy red fruits and pomegranates, noticeable tannins, but beautiful texture, depth, and ripeness. The wine just needs more time, and I think should turn out to be outstanding. It should be drunk in the first 5-8 years of life. (88-90+)

Firm, intense, full-bodied and pleasantly earthy, with dried berry, currant, sage and mineral notes, ending with a savory edge. Drink now through 2013.
