    February 21, 2016 - Wow - rich, but not overbright. Some grip, but still lots of velvet around the edges. Leans toward the plusher, darker sides of the spectra, but still quite recognizably a California Pinot. Drinking well now (February '16), but I wonder if it might be a little out of balance and suffer a bit in the out years - might not be hugely age-worthy like many other Failla Pinots are.

    June 30, 2015 - I don't usually open my Failla Pinots for four years or more from vintage year but based on all the tasting notes I gave this a slightly early try...and am glad I did! Lush fruit with minerals to balance. This is delicious now.

    March 26, 2015 - Full nose of black cherry, herbs and a subtle stem note. Full medium rich palate with more black cherry. Moderate structure and acid in the background. A fuller and more rich Pinot than I expect from Savoy.
