PEAY PINOT NOIR ESTATE "AMA", SONOMA COAST 2017
NVWE Notes: Sweet-natured and sharply focused, the nose of this classy and distinctive Pinot fans-out as a perfume of candied violets and pink roses backed by denser strains of blueberry, grenadine and blood orange: the whole firmed up by harder mineral underpinnings. On the palate, it is fruit-packed, mineral-laced and altogether racy in mouth-feel. The flavors are dominated by violet and blueberry, with well-defined notes of blood orange, grenadine, pink peppercorn and hazelnut nougat: these gently firmed by polished tannins and the ever-present minerality. Destined to be aristocratically feminine at maturity, it wants four years to get there. It will be brilliant in the short term if paired with seared duck breast and the like. 450 cases produced.
A brilliant wine, Peay's 2017 Pinot Noir Estate Ama offers an explosion of sweet red/purplish berry fruit, floral notes and spice, all with a hint of blood orange-infused acidity that gives the wine vibrancy. The 2017 Ama is wonderfully bold and luscious, and yet remains light on its feet. A striking wine from Peay. Antonio Galloni
