Peay Vineyards Sonoma Coast La Bruma Syrah 2006
The fog at Peay's far-coast vineyard seems to invest syrah with meaty peppercorn spice, the element in this wine that powers the red fruit with a nearly electric buzz. The color translates the fog into a vibrant, rosy edge: the tannins take it to mean minerals, as if picking up on the same soil character that pinot noir might translate into wine. La Bruma continues to grow more distinctive and elegant with each vintage.
Vivid ruby. Seductively perfumed bouquet of fresh raspberry, black olive, Asian spices and minerals. Sweet red berry flavors stain the palate and are framed by silky tannins that are quickly absorbed by the fruit. There's a pinot-like tension and focus to this wine that's really intriguing. The very clean finish features excellent precision and cut. This is Cote-Rotie to La Bruma's Hermitage.
