It’s Peay. May not be all Estate fruit but still it’s Peay. Vanessa makes great juice. #peayvineyards

Mid crimson in colour. Initial aromas after decanting of oak and vegetal notes. A little reticent. On the palate just medium weight with M plus Acid. At this age needs food. Probably just at the beginning of its drinking window - latent power, yet to blossom into its best expression. Revealed more on the 2nd night with quite a sweet palate developing. Will leave my 2nd bottle for a few years. A quality Pinot with a good future.

Dang! What a nose! Bright red fruit accented by distinct notes of hibiscus tea, flowers, cinnamon, and a touch of earth. Silky palate. This is extremely quaffable.

2016, a other tightly wound pinot I had the pleasure to try. A bit simpler than it's big sister by its side but has a total of 9 clones blended so I'm going to venture to say it will be ever evolving

Not ready yet, took some decanting to bring out the mineral structure

Rich, ripe black cherry, fleshy dense core. Earthy, black mushroom, sandlewood, and woodsy spice with soft texture and juicy fresh acidity. Pairs great with stranger things!🙃
