Food Pairings for Peay Vineyards Scallop Shelf Estate Pinot Noir
My boyfriend and I could not agree on a wine to choose for our dinner one evening. I wanted a Riesling and he wanted a Pinot Noir. I gave in and went for his choice and I was pleasantly surprised how light it was. It was a perfect compromise.
Bright, high-toned bouquet resplendent with floral and light red fruit aromas. Underneath the initial impression is a deeper core of Rainier cherries and brass notes framed by intoxicating brown spices. The 2009 offers the black tea, orange rind, jasmine, cranberry and lingonberry notes found in previous vintages of the Scallop Shelf. It is a little more delicate and light on its feet than the 2008 or 2006 with a superb balance of tannins, acidity and fruit and has an ethereal quality--volume without heaviness in the mid-palate--that is quite persistent on the finish. A feminine expression of Pinot Noir.
