Decanted an hour or so before consuming. Nice nose of red fruits, liqueur like taste on the palate made it harsh and not enjoyable. I suppose this was from the >14% alc. Long finish that was nice. Overall a disappointment though
Popped and poured. Very light ruby red; quite reticent on the nose but quite intense on the palate with definite red fruits (strawberry, raspberry) and a liqueur like taste with little in the way of tannins. Not a lot of complexity and lacking the spicy, forest floor notes that Littorai Pinots often have.
Opened not decanted. Consumed over two days. Better on day two. Last night I started to form the opinion that I'm not that much of a fan of the Savoy vineyard, but after tonight I'm wavering. There is that distinctive dark black fruit shellac on the nose that distinguishes it from other vineyards as well as the hint of clove and cinamon on the finish. Throw in some citrus and this is a well made and enjoyable wine. Good +
