($49; 14.4% alcohol; from vines planted in 1998) Very good medium ruby color. Wild black fruits, violet and smoke on the nose. A dense, muscular wine that delivers a real whack of fruit. Quite powerful and penetrating if not yet especially complex. Lifted by a tangy note of cranberry. This structured, large-scaled wine has a lower pH (3.45) than this winery's other 2003 pinots and is quite distinct in style. From a very cool site that clearly offers considerable potential.

The acidic flavors of the deep ruby/purple-colored 2003 Pinot Noir Peay Vineyard are accompanied by cranberry, raspberry, red currant, and cold steel characteristics. Clearly a cool climate Pinot with striking minerality, high acidity, and a pure, delineated style, it should age for a decade or more.

Tightly wound, intense without being overbearing, with dense mineral, black cherry and wild berry. Sharply focused and deeply concentrated, the finish is rich and persistent, with wonderful detail and length. 340 cases made.
