"Generous, abundant, ripe fruit flavors and a tasty touch of spicy oak make a fine combo in this medium-bodied, plush-textured wine. With repeated sips the fruit flavors taste even more intricate and interesting. The texture firms up nicely due to fine tannins and welcome acidity. While tempting to drink now, this will be best after 2018. — J.G. (12/1/2015)"

"The 2013 Pinot Noir Savoy Vineyard, from a site in Anderson Valley, is quite different in style from Failla's Sonoma Coast Pinots, most notable in its prominent tannin profile. The flavors are dark and inward, but the Savoy structure gives an impression of pure energy. Graphite, crushed rocks and sweet red berries add the final notes of complexity. -- Antonio Galloni"

After cutting his winemaking teeth assisting a consultant in France's Rhone Valley during the difficult 1992 and 1993 vintages, Ehren Jordan went on to make powerful, ultra concentrated Petite Syrahs and Zinfandels for Turley Wine Cellars. The lessons he learned in France about maximizing ripeness in challenging conditions now serve Jordan and his wife, Anne-Marie Failla (pronounced FAY-la), at their 85-acre property on the Sonoma Coast, about 2.5 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Proximally located near such great producers as Marcassin, Flowers, Hirsch, Martinelli, and Peter Michael, Gualala Ranch provides an ideal growing climate for Failla’s chosen varietals. In addition to estate fruit, they also purchase grapes from such renowned vineyards as Alban, Keefer Ranch and Hirsch. Concentrating on small production Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah Failla’s wines are complex expressions of their environment.

Extremely active in local community interests Failla is also a founding member of the West Sonoma Coast Vintners (WSCV) association. They are in good company with other MSW alums such as; Paul Hobbs, LIOCO, Siduri, Ramey Wine Cellars, Ceritas, Peay Vineyards, and many others.
