2010 Pinot Noir, Armagh Vineyard   

This final vintage of the Armagh pinot noir is a bitter-sweet one for us at Savannah Chanelle as we say farewell to this wonderful vineyard. It has proven to be an outstanding producer of fine pinot for many years, and has garnered many accolades for us along the way; and what a vintage to go out on! The 2010 is glorious! It is balanced and structured, aromatic and textured, it is quite simply the best of all the vintages we have offered from this vineyard. Huge amounts of black cherry fruit, hints of cinnamon spice, touches of vanilla and a flourish of earthy tobacco on the finish. I suspect this will go down as one of the classic Savannah Chanelle pinots that we talk about for many years to come.
