2015 Peay Vineyards Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
There is an exotic and heady floral and spice nose with musk, sandalwood, cardamom and cedar aromas. The wine is already quite cohesive with a focused progression from the front of the palate, where the fruit is featured, through the mid-palate, for texture, to the long and clean finish. There is a superb balance of fruit, earth, spice and floral notes. The acidity makes it energetic and not overly-weighed down or ponderous. On the finish, light tannins frame the wine and with 1-2 years more in bottle will soften and resolve. There is a lot of class and refinement at this price point.
Reviews for this wine
The 2015 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is a terrific appellation level wine from Peay. Bright red stone fruit, blood orange, tobacco, mint and orange peel give the wine its distinctive upper register. Finessed and light on its feet, the 2015 exudes class. This is a fabulous showing and an overachiever for the year.
