Pomum Cellars and Tempranillo
Pomum Cellars is the creation of Javier and Shyla Alfonso. Javier is one of those winemakers destined to make wine. With family located in the Ribera Del Duero Spain’s Tempranillo region and family in Zillah, Washington, Javier could run but couldn’t hide very long from finding his place in the heart of Washington’s wine industry.
Pomum’s tasting room is located in Woodinville. They source their grapes from the Yakima Valley and surrounding region including DeBrul Vineyards, Elderding Vineyards, Snipes Canyon Ranch, Upland Vineyards, Dineen Vineyards and their own estate vineyard called AD Dunn.
At Pomum you will find wines from grapes we all know and trust. For example Pomum makes an amazing classic Riesling for $18. Sourcing grapes from some of the oldest Riesling vines in the State you can’t miss with the quality and nice expression of the grape..
Other excellent and distinct wine’s include a 2007 Red Blend consisting of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21 % Merlot and 14% Cabernet Franc and a Syrah that is truly impeccable in structure and won’t disappoint.
Fortunately, Javier will not stray far from his Spanish roots. Tempranillo grows very well in Washington and Pomum’s Tinto blend which is predominately Tempranillo is a great example of Javier’s blended heritage and winemaking talents! Look for more Spanish wines including Albarino to come out of Pomum.
Pomum means fruit in Latin. It is apparent this winemaker understands the fruit and the terroir it comes from. Pomum wines deliver the message clearly that fine wine is all about the grape…..and the winemaker!
