Peake Ranch Pinot Noir
John Sebastiano Vineyard
The first release of the Peake Ranch John Sebastiano Vineyard Pinot Noir represents an extraordinary achievement in Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir. The steep, windy vineyard location produces tiny clusters and tiny grapes, yielding extraordinarily concentrated wines. There’s a substantial amount of weight and complexity to this wine. Dark fruit and spice on the palate combines with a long, structured finish to truly create a magnificent Pinot Noir.
This limited production wine is offered by allocation only.
