2009 Peay Vineyards Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1066063 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright red. An energetic, focused nose offers raspberry, cherry, fresh flowers, medicinal herbs and Asian spices. Then juicy, powerful and youthfully taut in the mouth, with very good mid-palate depth and expansive red berry flavors. The precise, refreshingly brisk finish leaves behind intense floral and mineral notes, along with a hint of white pepper. (JR) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Bold cherry and black raspberry flavors cut through the cool, earthy power of this wine like a shaft of sunlight through the coastal fog. The soft richness of the tannin carries an herbal note, another layer of complexity under the clean, long-lasting fruit. Grown at the Peays' far-coast vineyard in Annapolis, this wine's balance and restraint set it up for aging five years or more. Inner quote mark (4/2011)

91 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Precision rather than potency is the forte of this nicely crafted working, and, as is the case with first-tier Pinot, the wine is at once both rich and light on its feet. It exhibits a good sense of sustained fruity extract, and its neatly laid-on oakiness affords a complementary trim of sweet spice. It is firmed up by a spine of integral tannin and comes with a touch of last-minute heat, but its persistent message is that of fruit rather than ripeness, and it is a sure bet to improve for several years. *Two Stars* Inner quote mark (6/2011)

K&L Notes

The 2009 is mostly estate fruit from the winery's vineyards out on the brisk, windswept Sonoma Coast, about 70%, while the remainder comes from nearby sites that Nick and Andy Peay and winemaker Vanessa Wong felt would compiment their own. With its nose of Rainier cherry, dried orange peel, rose petals and refreshing pine, grounded by black tea and cherry flavors and a wonderfully fresh, lifted texture on the balanced palate, they seem to have achieved their goal.
