2014 Peay Vineyards Pinot Noir Scallop Shelf Estate - USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast (10/15/2020)
It's pretty common that I take the first sip of a wine, and get a rush of pure pleasure. With most wines that fades back to a more sustainable level in a few moments. Not so here. The first sip was a hit to the face of bright red fruit, leafy earth, spice and sea spray. Two hours later the energy was sustained, an emerging floral note joining the complex chorus. It's gardenia, a scent I have always loved, and that draws me back for more. It's clearly California from the sunshine infused fruit, but also its own place. State and country lines are arbitrary. Grapes don't care. The are where they are from. This is truly amazing.
