2008 Peay Vineyards Estate Roussanne/Marsanne, Sonoma Coast

90 points — Tanzer’s IWC

Very light gold. Fresh apple, pear and melon aromas are deepened by smoky lees and hints of honey and clove. Sappy passion fruit and orchard fruit flavors unfurl with aeration, revealing notes of dried lemon and musky herbs. Leaves zesty spice and lemon pith qualities behind on the sappy, gently smoky finish. The marsanne was picked at a very low 23o Brix.
