2012 Peay "Ama Estate" Pinot Noir

SKU #1216128 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Peay's 2012 Pinot Noir Ama Estate is once again gorgeous. Sweet, silky tannins caress the palate as this wonderfully juicy, expressive Pinot shows off its considerable personality. Sweet tobacco, mint and cedar notes all add complexity in an impeccable, totally gracious wine. Hints of orange peel, spices and pomegranate add intrigue and nuance on the juicy, resonant finish. Inner quote mark (2/2014)

94 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (4/2014)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Vivid ruby. Black raspberry, cherry-cola and pungent herbs on the deeply scented nose. Fleshy and expansive in the mouth, offering broad red and dark berry flavors and a suave note of candied flowers. Picks up spiciness with air and finishes on a smoky dark berry note, with very good thrust and youthful tannic grip. Inner quote mark (5/2014)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Cherry blossom and black tea with a saline crunch and savoury palate. Accents of smoke. Ultra-lean right now. With age will uncurl beautifully. Inner quote mark (1/2015)
