2021 Peay Vineyards Ama Estate Pinot noir, West Sonoma Coast
For those who have been following Ama since its inception in 2009, you have witnessed this wine become more refined, seamless, focused and, frankly, delicious.
The Ama Estate Pinot is the bottle we grab when heading out to pour for self-professed Pinot noir lovers. It has seductive and captivating strawberry rhubarb, lavender, and cherry fruit aromas that leap from the glass. These fruit and floral notes are echoed on the palate framed by mineral/ink and spice flavors finishing with silky tannins and fresh, energetic acidity. This is a graceful, seamless wine full of pleasure.
Jeb Dunnuck: 97 pts. The palate is full-bodied with great structure.
Vinous/Galloni: 95 pts. The 2021 is lights out.
