Peay Vineyards Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Pomarium 2006
When prepping the soil for planting, we discovered ancient scallop and nautilus fossils revealing our hill top's residence on the deep ocean floor prior to the formation of the coastal range. The 2006 Scallop Shelf Estate Pinot noir is a blend of 6 clones: Pommard, 777, 115, Swan, Mt. Eden and 828. It was fermented in small, open-top fermenters, moved by gravity, aged for 11 months in 39% new French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Outstanding Pinot Noir ... light and delicate as Pinot should be in my opinion. Very good fruit and acidity. Will pair nicely with many dishes.
Pleasant raspberry and dark chocolate aromas and flavors, with a tangy mid-palate and a little bit of mushroom and earth on the finish.
High-toned raspberry and cherry fruit aromas and flavors. Intriguing notes of orange peel and fine-grained tannins. Very smooth. Lighter in the mid-palate than the Pomarium.

Medium red. Bright red berry, rose and baking spice scents are deepened by mocha and spicecake. Sappy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are braced by zesty minerality and become sweeter with air. A late jolt of blood orange adds energy and cut to the long, juicy finish of this essentially silky wine. International Wine Cellar, May Jun 08
