Dinner at Saison (Saison, San Francisco): This was pretty good. It had rather ripe nose, with lots of plums and cooked strawberries, some earth and meat, and little accents of rubber and some darjeeling tea scents. Interesting. The palate seemed to have a slightly difference profile. Less ripe than the nose suggested, this showed dark cherries and blackberries more than strawberries, with a very 2007 feel in its clean, defined character. The midpalate was pure Savigny, with a meaty background and little notes of rubber, bramble and spice spice as the wine glided into a long, fresh finish. An enjoyable, early drinking wine; great with food too.
