Peay Pomarium Pinot Noir 2017
Winery: "The Pomarium blend 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 made, really, anywhere. As I have noted in the last 3 vintages, the quality of Pomarium has improved dramatically and is more complex, nuanced and downright delicious than ever before and 2017 continues this upward trend. The nose on the 2017 Pomarium is exotic with floral incense aromas enveloping a black tea and tobacco core. The floral quality counter balances the earthy notes and allows the fruit to emerge as a cohesive whole. The palate reveals the masculine side with dried leaf qualities, dark berry, blood/iron, and green peppercorn spice all held together by fine tannins less grippy than in 2016. Pomarium is the most masculine of our Estate pinot noirs and is yummy now but will also reward bottle aging."
