2016 Peay Vineyards Pomarium Estate Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
The Pomarium is made from clones and blocks that capture dark fruit and earth flavors while also featuring high tone floral incense aromas. This offers a broad canvas and a balanced tension to the wine that makes it unique among wines from our area and from Pinot noir made, really, anywhere. The nose on the 2016 Pomarium has a powerful core reminiscent of Japanese plums, which are tangy and tart while also dark and deep black. The floral quality keeps the aroma lifted and bright and not heavy. The palate reveals a more serious and masculine side with dried leaf qualities, dark berry, blood/iron, and blood orange flavors all held together by fine tannins. This is a very good Pomarium and will age beautifully for many years to come.
