THE REVIEW

Syrah is back and better than ever. The resurgence of this captivating varietal is long overdue. Specifically, domestic Syrah (unlike Rhone reds or Australian Shiraz), thrives in the cool maritime climates of Sonoma.
    Cep is owned by Peay Vineyards and is Peay's 2nd label. These extremely limited wines come from hand selected barrels destined for Peay bottling. This is one of Sonoma's best kept secrets.
    CEP is the quintessential cool climate Syrah. It is made by highly acclaimed winemaker Vanessa Wong. Wong cut her teeth at Peter Michael and Chateau Lafite as well as other world renowned wineries.
    Located in the remote areas of the Sonoma Coast, CEP is surrounded by luscious redwoods and tempered by the cool fog that weaves its way in from the coast. The fruit sourced from this vineyard capture the exquisite and authentic terroir of the Peay Vineyards.
