Peay 2012 Sonoma Coast Ama Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir

94 — Wine and Spirits

Ama is one of three pinot noirs that the Peays make from their Annapolis estate, four miles from the Pacific, the vines cooled by ocean fog. Winemaker Vanessa Wong focuses this wine around blocks planted in 2001, mostly clone 828 and a “suitcase” selection. Her 2012 is seductive, violet-scented with a penetrating brightness and silken texture. There’s no need to drink it right away, but its youthful energy is already hard to resist.
