Winemaker Notes: "The 2014 Cep pinot noir is really delicious. It is made up mostly of barrels from the 35 acres of Pinot noir we grow at our estate vineyard. The remaining barrels come from Campbell Vineyard and the Occidental region of the Sonoma Coast. The 2014 delivers the balance, elegance and complexity you would expect from de-classified barrels of Peay Vineyards Estate Pinot noirs.

This is easy drinking and fresh, with a great mouthfeel.
96 points Wine Enthusiast: "***Cellar Selection*** Silky, with pronounced tannins that should mellow in time, this is an earthy, stemmy and perfumed wine. Succulent and balanced, it’s brightly exuberant in black cherry yet brooding and complex throughout, changing slightly from savory to floral and back again. It’s an incredible wine out of the gate; cellar with confidence, through 2021.

Silky tannins add considerable polish to the sua ...Read More »
