The Sonoma Coast is made exclusively from our Estate fruit and over-delivers on every level. The blend includes a majority of the 15 Pinot noir clones we grow on the 35-acre Pinot noir vineyard. As such it captures the signature savory, earth, floral and fruit profile that makes the West Sonoma Coast and Peay Pinot noirs unique. The nose on the 2017 Sonoma Coast blend is a knock-out with a prominent orange rind and black tea quality reminiscent of our Scallop Shelf cuvee. The mouth confirms the impression on the nose adding aromas of rose petals and dried herbs along with tart dried fruit qualities. The mid palate is medium bodied with light silky tannins and bright acidity. This is a wine where earth, fruit and floral aromas are in harmony and as a result will become even better as the wine opens up and/or ages in bottle.
The 2017 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is a stellar appellation-level wine from Peay. Light on its feet, perfumed and super-expressive, it has much to offer. Sweet red cherry, plum, rose petal, lavender and spice all develop in the glass. This is a very serious, appellation-level wine done entirely from estate fruit. Don't miss it.
