2021 Peay Vineyards West Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
As discussed on the front page of the newsletter, the 2021 vintage made spectacular wines across the board due to a harmonious growing season, optimal vine age, and our vineyard’s overall robust health. But it made really spectacular Pinot noir. The nose of the inaugural West Sonoma Coast Pinot noir is seductive with floral, hippie aromas, and red fruits swirling above our signature, earthy, base note. There is refinement and balance with loads of flavor and depth but the wine is not over-burdened and sluggish due to excessive ripeness or alcohol. This is the expression of Pinot noir we hope to capture every year. It is what makes the West Sonoma Coast, and Peay Vineyards, such an interesting and unique grape-growing terroir. This wine does not taste like it could come from any other winegrowing region in the world. It is self-confidently Peay Pinot noir from the West Sonoma Coast and I am thrilled to show you what we can achieve out here.
