The concentrated aromas of wild cherries, sweet spices, cardamom and mineral immediately fill your glass. The racy acids fill your mouth with wild berry flavors, violets, white truffle and toasty oak. Rich and expansive tannins drive the long sensuous finish in your mouth. This is probably one of the most expressive Sonoma Coast wines that will develop well with time.
"Deep red. Complex, highly aromatic nose combines vibrant red berries, cherry compote, floral oils, Asian spices and a whiff of tarragon. Juicy and very intense but surprisingly light on its feet; spreads out to stain the palate without any impression of weight or warmth. This energetic wine should put on weight in a couple of years but is pretty intriguing now. Very pure pinot with fully integrated tannins and excellent finishing energy and lift."

"edium ruby, with complex aromatics reminiscent of a premier cru from the Cote de Beaune, the strawberry, black cherry and foresty notes of the 2008 Pinot Noir Peay Vineyard are hard to resist. One of the softer, lusher styles from Williams-Selyem, this wine is medium-bodied, elegant, restrained, but beautifully fruited and seductive. Drink it over the next 5-7 years."
