The 2018 Pomarium Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir is a big, powerful dark-fruited gem. This one is built for the long haul, and will take a little time to open up (as Antonio Galloni suggests). Give it time in the cellar or time in the glass, but don’t rush in.
That’s because it’s a GIANT. What normally is a five clone blend, wound up this year just having two: Dijon 667 and Calera. That left this wine with a dark purple hue and wonderful flavors of black cherries, blueberries, herbs and spices. 96 points from Antonio Galloni of Vinous.

The 2018 Pinot Noir Estate Pomarium is the most inward of the Peay 2018 Pinots. There is good depth and density but the 2018 is decidedly inward looking today. A wine of power and drive, the Pomarium needs time to unwind, that’s pretty clear. At the same time, the potential is evident. Time in the glass brings out scents of rose petal, lavender, mint, sage and spice, along with gorgeous red/purplish berry fruit.
Peay has quickly cemented itself in the top pantheon of Sonoma wineries.
