2008 Cep Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., $24. A second label from Peay Vineyards. · Initially the nose is attractive with aromas of fresh berries, but as the wine sits in the glass, a subtle smokiness comes out. The medium-weighted core of berry fruit has underpinnings of tar and ash. Silky smooth and tries to please, but the smoke affectation detracts. Good (-) Reviewed August 24, 2010
