On the nose rich black cherry also red and blue fruits - raspberry and blueberry Barb thought. Very aromatic. Medium weight palate with a sweetish flavour of red fruits - more fruit driven than savoury on the palate. I don’t believe this will drink better than it does now but will hold up for several years at this level. The intensity of this wine and location to the ocean together with the aromas and richness of flavour reminds me of Huon Valley Tasmanian wines like Home Hill Estate - both wonderful new world Pinot Noir. — 2 months ago
Elegant Cali Syrah. Floral with high-toned dark fruit black pepper, and a savory backbone. Great minerality and acidity. — 4 months ago
Baked raspberry and strawberries, minerally river rock smoothness, black cherry, smoky dried cran.
On the palate rich raspberry and cherry candy drive-by, dried cranberry, and violets. Top notch Pinot singing long and loud arias to tug the heartstrings.

Mid to light crimson in colour. Red fruited, cherry and strawberry, and light spice - a touch of Sous Bois. Surprisingly light in palate weight - more fruit than savoury driven. Tastes a lot younger (and fresher) than 7 years of age. A sweetish jujube character on the palate - light tannins and acid. The following night, a stewed rhubarb character on the palate. In summary a very good new world Pinot if not a little on the light side. — 2 months ago
Nose is multidimensional which consistently reveals the tasting profile. Rich, creamy foundation with Meyer lemon, pineapple, and apricot poking through. Structurally matches with nice acid balancing the richness. This is rounder and softer than I expected for a young Peay. Drinking very well already. — 3 months ago
Light-bodied, thin-legged Pinot with notes of red cherry, baker’s vanilla, milk chocolate, tar, and unburned firecrackers on the nose. I have a tendency to smell firecrackers. Anyhoo on the palate cranberry and tart cherry with hints of herbaceous eucalyptus, mint, cinnamon, and black tea. Short finished but well balanced. Went surprisingly well with pizza rolls. — 5 months ago
