Peay 2011 Sonoma Coast Ama Pinot Noir

93 — Wine and Spirits

Selected from blocks planted at the Peay’s Annapolis vineyard in 2001, this is brisk with spicy raspberry depths and muscular, racy tannins. It’s is a dynamic pinot noir, shading from red to dark fruit the way forest sunlight moves into shadow (or, in more direct terms, the way a vine’s canopy shifts from cool, dappled light into full-on sun). There’s power in the tannins, a concentrated force that will broaden and expand as the wine ages.
