2007 Peay Vineyards "La Bruma Estate" Sonoma Coast Syrah

SKU #1054248 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Very classy and elegant, the 2007 Peay Vineyards Syrah La Bruma sports captivating aromatics of raw beef, freshly cracked peppercorns, cedar, violets and underbrush, all wrapped around a vibrant core of beautiful, cool climate, Syrah fruit. Medium bodied, pure and focused on the palate, this has a brilliantly textured mid-palate, racy acidity, and a clean, long finish. Simply a superb example of what Syrah can do in the right place; this should easily drink well for 10 to 12 years. (JebDunnuck.com) Inner quote mark (11/2010)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright purple. Vibrant raspberry, cherry, potpourri and incense on the sharply focused, highly expressive nose. Dense, juicy and sweet, with graceful strawberry and raspberry flavors and a supple, seamless texture. Picks up spiciness and floral character, as well as a hint of smoke, with a few minutes of aeration. Finishes very long, with gentle tannins and a strong note of candied flowers. I marginally prefer this wine's elegance to the power of the Les Titans today. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2010)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Black plum cushions the black and red peppercorn spice of this wine. It's dense, but not heavy with extract, the wine's chocolatey richness balanced by lighter scents of lavender. Grown at Peay's far-coast vineyard in Annapolis, this should develop more complexity with ages. Inner quote mark (2/2010)

K&L Notes

La Bruma ("the mist or fog") pays tribute to the role fog plays in producing the unique mesoclimate of the Peay vineyards. The 2007 La Bruma has the classic cool climate characteristics of Syrah and is already drinking quite well. The style is more similar to the 2002 and 2005 vintages showing finesse over power. The nose opens with aromas of wet stone lifted by violet, boysenberry and a touch of white pepper. The aromas are not fruity but instead are savory with notes of tarragon, rare steak and cloves supporting the graphite and berry notes. The acidity is superb creating a focused and persistent finish. If you open a bottle now, do not decant but instead watch it develop in the glass.
