Peay Pinot Noir Pomarium Sonoma Coast 2018
VM96: The 2018 Pinot Noir Estate Pomarium is the most inward of the Peay 2018 Pinots. There is good depth and density but the 2018 is decidedly inward looking today. A wine of power and drive, the Pomarium needs time to unwind, that's pretty clear. At the same time, the potential is evident. Time in the glass brings out scents of rose petal, lavender, mint, sage and spice, along with gorgeous red/purplish berry fruit.
WA96: The 2018 Estate Pinot Noir Pomarium is a gorgeous wine that's immediately accessible but has the stuffing and structure to age gracefully in the cellar. The nose offers forest floor, wet leaves and laurel, cranberry sauce and blood orange with notes of lavender, garrigue and blueberries. The palate is medium-bodied, expanding outward to super perfumed, concentrated fruits, finely grained and seamlessly fresh with a very long finish. 575 cases produced.
