Food Pairings for Peay Vineyards Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Pomarium
The name Pomarium (po-mare-ee-um, apple orchard in Latin) harkens to the early 20th century when our hill was planted to Bartlett pears and Gravenstein apples for dried fruit production to feed San Francisco. The terroir expression due to the vintage trumps clonal style as the 2008 Pomarium is deeper, earthier and more masculine than previous vintages. The complexity gained from very low yields is immediately evident. The nose shows chunky red fruits from the Dijon clones with cedar and bing cherry notes revealing themselves as the wine opens. The tannins are soft but present and provide a framework for the evolving aromas of cranberry, tea, earth, hickory smoke and mushroom. The finish is very long. The 2008 Pomarium has excellent breed and quality. Decant for at least 30 minutes for the fruit aromas to lift and age for 2-3 years for bottle bouquet to develop.
