2007 Peay Vineyards Estate Roussanne/Marsanne, Sonoma Coast

score around 9.5 — Vinography


Pale green gold in color, this wine has an exotic, ethereal nose of honeysuckle, paraffin, and saffron aromas. On the tongue it is a remarkable combination of neon citrus — lemon and tangerine mostly — with amazing ginger and nutty qualities that surface in a very long finish. Perfect acidity adds a mineral quality to the wine that is quite fetching. Quite possibly the best Roussanne/Marsanne blend made in California, I only wish they made about 10 times as much of this as they do. It’s quite hard to get ahold of. Made in entirely neutral barrels.
