2010 Peay Pomarium Pinot Noir

Peay Vineyards is one of my favorite wineries in the world. In fact, it was the first mailing list I ever joined, and I've been buying wines from Peay for as long as I've been obsessed with wine.

I’m not alone in my affection for the winery. Way back in 2006, when Peay Vineyards was still a newcomer, New York Times wine critic Eric Asimov wrote about the “rare intensity and precision” of the wines. It was the San Francisco Chronicle's 2009 Winery of the Year, and Alder Yarrow of Vinography has called all Peay’s wines "spectacularly good."

Peay's 2010 "Pomarium" Pinot Noir is the best it has ever made. The wine is intense, exotic, and refreshing -- one could easily fill an entire notebook with tasting notes on this wine. Orange rind, bright raspberries, tart cherries, Christmas spices, black tea, forest floor... the list goes on. It's a beautiful wine.
