Adrian Fog was born from the idea that Pinot Noir should have a sense of place and that the vineyard is the birthplace of great wine. All of our vineyards are selected for their individuality. By hand selecting cool climate fruit from small vineyards, Adrian Fog is able to maintain the unique signature and personality of the vineyard. Each vineyard is selected by considering the effect of coastal fog patterns, clonal differences, age and vine orientation to the sun. Picking, fermentation and barrel aging are done by keeping all clones and blocks separate. We are able to learn more and appreciate each wine's nuances and style intimately. Our bottlings are determined by the wine's individuality, our largest bottling is 230 cases and the smallest is 23 cases.

Wine AdvocateThe 2002 Pinot Noir Savoy Vineyard's bouquet merits 96 points as it is one of the most complete, complex grand cru Pinot Noirs one could ever smell from the New World. Forest floor, flower garden, sweet cherry, strawberry, crushed rocks, and smoky game-like scents represent an aromatic tour de force. The flavors are not quite at the same level, but they are superb nevertheless. This medium to dark ruby-colored Pinot possesses gorgeous sweetness as well as an expansive mouthfeel yet an ethereal lightness. Drink this remarkable Pinot Noir over the next 5-6 years.
