Peake Ranch Syrah
John Sebastiano Vineyard
Beautiful violet color with exuberant aromatics and perfume. Sophisticated, intense yet harmonious, and very youthful. Dark cherry dominant and super clean, with a gentle trace of the finest Cuban tobacco on the nose. Pronounced but elegant, spicy tannins on the finish with underlying savory notes and a subtle hint of smoked bacon. Juicy and tasty, expressing the highest of potential that this variety has in the cool Sta. Rita Hills. Delicious to drink now in its youth, but will improve over the next 10-12 years. Enjoy with duck breast, grilled lamb chops or steak, or your favorite Italian pasta.
This limited production wine is offered by allocation only.
