Food Pairings for Peay Vineyards Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Estate
If you ever wished for a little more fruit and richness without sacrificing the acidity or structure of a Peay Pinot noir, then the 2007 Estate may be just the cuvée for you. It is a blend of mostly Dijon 828 and a suitcase selection we call "Boots" as well as a little 115 and a Pommard selection. With this third cuvée we demonstrate how clone 828 and the Boots selection put a slightly different twist on a Peay Pinot noir while still staying true to the vineyard's character. The Estate Pinot has an intense cherry nose with brown spices, iron, dried needle, and brass highlights. The mouth is round, smooth and full-bodied. The tannins are soft, though present, and support aromas of bright cherry, chocolate, sandalwood and forest floor. There is a touch of anise seed on a very long - minutes long - cherry finish. Though the Estate Pinot noir is richer than Pomarium, the acidity is quite good and the elegance of Pinot noir made from our vineyard is evident. 486 cases produced.
