Food Pairings for Peay Vineyards Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Ama Estate
Um, 150 cases?! Yes, ouch. We had very poor fruit set and the rain in October devastated this part of the vineyard. So, what of the little fruit that remained? The 2010 Ama has does not have the rich cherry core and power of the 2009 Ama and, to some effect, this makes it an even more striking wine. The base notes of dried pine needles, chanterelle mushrooms, and cherry aromas are embraced in a citrus rind, spicy perfume that allows the earthy notes to gain lift and soar. On the palate, the licorice and herbal note of tarragon accent the profile of the nose. The mid-palate has good tension and focus and finishes quite cleanly due to very good acidity and soft tannins.
