PEAY PINOT NOIR "POMARIUM", ESTATE VINEYARD, SONOMA COAST 2016
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
The 2016 Pinot Noir Estate Pomarium is bright, focused and tightly wound, with a distinctly red-fruit and mineral-leaning set of aromas and flavors. The 2016 is endowed with striking translucence and nuance, but it also needs at least a few years in bottle to be at its very best. The focus, tension and energy here are remarkable.
NVWE Notes: This is a stunning wine, as a near-perfect vintage has woven the disparate elements of this exotic property into a museum-worthy tapestry. The nose is a chiseled mix of Bing cherry, Amarena cherry jam, red raspberry, strawberry, pomegranate, rose petal, sumac berry, pink and black peppercorn, star anise, cardamom, leather, nougat, morel mushroom and oyster shell scents. It is zesty and mineral-packed in the mouth, where Amarena cherry, Elephant Heart plum, pomegranate, blood orange, boysenberry, blueberry, teaberry, violet, nougat, cardamom and baking-spice flavors shine. The focused finish is ultra-long while its firm tannins and saline mineral undercurrents remain smothered in fruit to the end. Certain to be better in five to eight years, it is wonderful already. 550 cases produced.
