Vivid ruby. Sexy aromas of pungent cherry, spicecake and fresh rose, with an almost liqueur-like suggestion of raspberry compote. Suave, silky and densely packed, with intense minerality giving the primary but complex red fruit and floral flavors terrific definition and cut. Impressively balanced pinot with the spine to age slowly and gracefully. The endless finish features harmonious tannins that are broad and very fine.
The 2009 Pinot Noir Pomarium is a sleek, gracious wine with terrific depth and roundness. It shows lovely depth and persistence. Mint, eucalyptus and dried flowers are woven into the articulate finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017. (AG)
Grown on the site of an old Gravenstein apple orchard in Annapolis, Pomarium carries its fair share of malic acidity in '09, as if the grapes learned something from the former residents. Scents of red apple-skin and spice emphasize the acidic side of this young wine, a lean and structured pinot noir that needs bottle age to evolve past its tannin. Though heady and warm, it's not heavy, maintaining transparency in its fruit presence.
