2018 Peay Vineyards Vin Blanc, Roussanne/Marsanne, Sonoma Coast

91Erin Brooks - The Wine Advocate

The 2018 Estate Vin Blanc is a blend of Roussanne and Marsanne and is only the second edition of this cuvée, first made in 2014. Andy Peay says most of the time, these grapes are sold off in bulk but that in a vintage like 2018, it’s good enough to be bottled on its own. The nose is singular and savory, with aromas of beeswax, lemon cream, honeycomb, curry and nutty notions. Light to medium-bodied, it takes its time to segue from bright mineral notions to creamy fruits and back again for bright pops of freshness to lift the long, delicate finish. This is unique and tasty and promises more to come with another couple years in bottle. Only about 30-40 cases were made.
