Lots of dark fruit and some oak on the nose; the same fruit, rich and ripe, in the mouth, with a bit of heat on the finish. While I generally don't much like Calif. pinots, I was pleased enough with this one until I had a $14 '08 Beaune at the same meal. The French wine had much less heft and fruit, but more nuance and interest, and it's acidity made it more lively in the mouth and better with food. Going back to the Peay then, it seemed syrupy - too heavy and simple - by comparison. Four of us finished the Beaune, and left half a bottle of Peay by the end of lunch.
