Peay Vineyards Pinot Noir Ama Estate 2017
Peay Vineyards sits above a river gorge in the northwestern corner of the “true” Sonoma Coast. Vanessa Wong and her husband started the vineyard from scratch in 1996. Vanessa’s winemaking resume includes Peter Michael Winery, Chateau Lafite-Rothschild, and Hirsch Winery. Ama Estate is bold, ripe, and full of fruit. Look for notes of mint, spice, and sweet red cherry. A super compelling Pinot Noir.
VM95: 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.
