Peake Ranch Pinot Noir
John Sebastiano Vineyard
From a windy site on the eastern slopes of the Sta. Rita Hills, we have made our second vintage of a Pinot Noir that proves to be both powerful and highly structured yet remarkably juicy and delicious at once. A seductive mix of dark fruits, smoke and savory herbs, this wine can pair well with just about any meal or happily enjoyed on its own. Once again, winemaker Paul Lato has crafted a classically-styled Pinot Noir from this stately fruit that is lively in its youth and will age with grace and finesse.
This limited production wine is offered by allocation only.
