Jeb Dunnuck, August 2017

“I raved about these wines last year (the first vintage), and I’m thrilled to report that the latest releases are every bit as good. The Pinot Noir and Syrah comes from the John Sebastiano Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills, and the Chardonnays from the Sierra Madre Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley. The wines are made by Paul Lato, so the quality should surprise no one.”

94 POINTS - 2015 PEAKE RANCH CHARDONNAY SANTA MARIA VALLEY

The first vintage for this cuvée it was created with the idea to improve the quality of the single vineyard. The 2015 Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley is a stunning value that offers classic buttered stone fruits, toasted nuts and honeysuckle in a rich, texture, balanced style. It way over delivers at the price and is a terrific wine. It’s one of the larger production releases as well (536 cases), so hopefully you can find a few bottles.”

 97 POINTS - 2015 PEAKE RANCH CHARDONNAY SIERRA MADRE VINEYARD

“From cool site in the Santa Maria Valley and a barrel selection made in the cellar, the 2015 Chardonnay Sierra Madre Vineyard is a stunning, hedonistic, pedal-to-the-metal beauty that offers tons of stone fruits, buttered citrus, crushed rocks and honeysuckle aromas and flavors. Big, rich, layered and decadent, with a killer finish, it's a sensational Chardonnay that will compete with the best out there. Like the other cuvées, it’s made in tiny quantities and there’s just 326 cases out there.”

95 POINTS - 2015 PEAKE RANCH PINOT NOIR JOHN SEBASTIANO VINEYARD

“Showing a darker slant in its currants, cassis, smoked earth and licorice, the 2015 Pinot Noir John Sebastiano Vineyard is beautifully concentrated, rich and layered, with a silky, seamless texture. While the straight Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir is selected with the idea of making an upfront, approachable wine, this cuvée is selected from lots that have the most backbone and structure. There’s 318 cases produced."

94 POINTS - 2015 PEAKE RANCH STA. RITA HILLS PINOT NOIR

“An incredible value that should be snatched up by readers, the 356-case 2015 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills comes all from the John Sebastiano Vineyard and is a cellar selection brought up all in barrel. Black raspberries, toasted spice, forest floor and hints of earth all give way to a rich, voluptuous, beautifully pure Pinot that has a great finish.”

95 POINTS - 2015 PEAKE RANCH SYARH JOHN SEBASTIANO VINEYARD

“The first Syrah from this estate and bottled end of April, the 2015 Syrah John Sebastiano Vineyard saw 40% whole cluster and was aged in 66% new French oak. This sensational beauty offers tons of black raspberry, white chocolate, white pepper and licorice as well as full-bodied richness, a seamless texture, sweet tannin and an ethereal texture. Unfortunately, there’s just 73 cases.”
