2010 Peay Vineyards, Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast.
A re-visit of the lovely 2010 Peay Sonoma Coast Pinot brings even more pleasure than my first go round, as it has gained quite a bit in the last 4-6 months. This entry level bottling from Vanessa Wong, Nick and Andy Peay is so pretty and stylish that it just begs to be drunk now with a light delicate perfume and round texture. The seductive bouquet of roses and violets leads to crushed stones, loam, apple skin and bright raspberries. A tangy core of black cherry and plum fruit stays throughout and lingers on the finish while a zesty streak of acidity lifts the flavors and should soften nicely with another year in bottle, though the freshness is wonderful and adds detail to the wine, so don’t be afraid to enjoy this beauty now.
