Peay Pomarium Pinot Noir 2014
Dark cherry and plum sit at the core of the nose with bright pomegranate, anise seed, and red apple skin framing the cherry aroma. Deep in the nose (sniff deeply) you will find iron, musk and forest floor qualities that make this decidedly a masculine Pinot noir. The mouth is well-proportioned with a harmonious equilibrium at even this young age. The soft tannins on the finish do not cut short the persistent finish and the lively acidity bodes well for cellaring. The 2014 Pomarium really captures the personality of our windy coastal vineyard resting on a hill top among the fog and conifers. Enjoy now or as long as you desire to hold it (10+ years). I suspect it has a long life ahead of it.
