HOT FROM THE PRESS: A KILLER 99 Point Pinot and 98 Point Syrah

 
Husband and wife, Nick Peay & Vanessa Wong, grow and make the wine and brother Andy Peay manages the business. With minor exceptions, all wines are made from grapes grown on their 53-acre hilltop vineyard located above a river in the far northwestern corner of the West Sonoma Coast, 4 miles from the Pacific Ocean at Sea Ranch. Doing it organically, while running off of solar power and all biodiesel equipment makes it even more amazing. Not surprisingly, this level of commitment to excellence is every bit reflected in the amazing quality of the Peay Wines!

Peay 2021 “Scallop Shelf” Estate Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
GGWC 89.99


Jeb Dunnuck 99 Points: “More mineral aromas emerge in the 2021 Pinot Noir Scallop Shelf, with notes of wet stone, black raspberry, and fresh herbs. Medium-bodied and more tension driven, it’s taut with orange zest, clove, and gravelly, saline earth. It’s going to need time to unpack. Drink 2026-2046.”

Winemaker Notes: “The Scallop Shelf has evolved over the last 15 years into the most mineral-driven and understated of our Pinot noirs. The 2021 is perfectly proportioned and harmonious with aromas of sassafras, wet slate, and apple skin with a floral and savory note popping in and out. The elements of the wine are already remarkably well-integrated with notes of cedar, forest floor, and ras el hanout spice framing the fruit. The finish is bright and the flavors go on and on. A wonderful Scallop Shelf from a superb vintage.”

Peay 2020 “Les Titans” Estate Syrah Sonoma Coast
GGWC 79.99


Jeb Dunnuck 98 Points: “The 2020 Syrah Les Titans is ripe and more brooding, with savory tones of olive, blackberry, plum, and ripe earth. Full-bodied and pure, it has a fantastic, gripping structure and is more grounded but weightless. Drink 2025-2040."

Winemaker Notes: “The 2020 Les Titans Estate Syrah is packed with all the aromas that make lovers of cold climate Syrah seek high and low in a never-ending search for more. The nose smells like a juicy hangar steak with aromas of tarragon, iron, black olive, and blood intermingling with blue fruit. The wine is soft and round in the mid-palate and much more approachable on release than is typical for our Syrah due to a warmer 2020 vintage. There is still refreshing acidity and brightness on the finish but it is not as wound up. It tastes a little like an excellent Cornas in a cool year.”
