Peay Vineyards Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Pomarium 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose is quite intense with dried rose petals enveloping a Serrano ham and red berry core. The mouth emphasizes the cured meat, brass and berry aromas adding cherry pipe tobacco, tea, forest floor and cedar notes in the mid-palate. The wine evolves over the 30 minutes in the glass and continues to reveal new aromas including black licorice, cranberry, and sanguine notes. The finish is clean due to very good acidity and lingers for an astonishing amount of time. Although young, the Pomarium is ready to drink now with a decant but we suggest aging it for at least 3 years and holding for 15-20 as it has the tannins, acidity and balance to flourish over time.

Peay Vineyards is located in the far northwestern corner of Sonoma County approximately 4 miles from the Pacific Ocean near Sea Ranch. The vineyard is situated along the coast, but not on the very first ridge. We have a partially obstructed avenue formed by the Wheatfield Fork of the Gualala River that allows for some fog and copious cool air penetration. The vineyard sits on a hilltop that is not way up in the air, but just at the top of the fog level, low enough to be very cool, but high enough not to be too cool and wet to grow grapes. We think it is the perfect combination of climatological factors. California has a diverse range of microclimates. Our hilltop vineyard also expresses many subtle variations depending on whether it faces south, southeast or west; sits high on the hilltop in the afternoon breeze with full sun; or rests lower on the slope with greater fog influence and less sunlight. But make no mistake, this is pretty cool climate for grape growing. We cross our fingers hoping that the fruit will ripen before rains start in late October/early November. In some years, getting it ripe may be a challenge. But that is why we produce superior fruit. Due to the cool climate we have a long growing season with moderate temperatures ideal for maximizing the production of intense flavors and phenolic compounds that result in complex wines. And we will always have plenty of acid to provide structure. No flabby, overripe wines here. Read less
