Peay Pinot Noir 2016
The Sonoma Coast bottling includes a majority of the 15 Pinot noir clones we grow on the 35 acre Pinot noir vineyard and over-delivers for its price point. It deftly captures the signature savory, earth, floral and fruit profile that makes the West Sonoma Coast and Peay Pinot noirs unique. The bright nose on the 2016 Sonoma Coast Pinot noir is a knock-out featuring spice-laden ginger bread and tobacco leaf aromas accenting a raspberry and cherry core of fruit. There is real depth on the palate without fat and the round mouthfeel on the mid palate is held in check by light tannins that soften with air. A mixture of hibiscus, brine, and dried herbes de Provence flavors linger on the long finish. The balance of fruit, floral, and earth make this a very compelling and engaging wine.
