2016 Peake Ranch John Sebastiano Vineyard Pinot Noir

From a windy site on the eastern slope of the Santa Rita Hills comes a Pinot Noir that embodies power, structure and concentration at its core. Intensely fruit forward with predominantly blueberry and black cherry notes. Graham cracker, fresh cut herbs, rose and toffee hints are also discernible. The fruit lingers on the palate, finishing beautifully with soft oak tannin. Winemaker Paul Lato has once again crafted a classically-styled Pinot Noir from the stately fruit of John Sebastiano Vineyard, providing lively, delicious, early enjoyment. Those of you with patience, however, will find this gem reveals additional complexities with a few years of cellaring.

95 Points- Jeb Dunnuck “Lastly, the medium ruby-colored 2016 Pinot Noir John Sebastiano Vineyard boasts a darker, earthier style as well as notes of red, black, and blue fruits, leafy herbs, forest floor, and spice. Prettier and more elegant on the palate, with a seamless texture and fine tannins, it’s another world class Pinot Noir from winemaker Paul Lato. This cuvée spent 18 months in 36% new French oak, and while approachable today, it will keep for 8-10 years."- Jeb Dunnuck 93 Points- Vinous A powerful, dense wine, the 2016 Pinot Noir John Sebastiano Vineyard is another compelling wine from Peake Ranch. The 2016 is going to need a few years to come into its own. Even so, the deep fruit and vertical sense of structure make for a complete and deeply intriguing Pinot that will be fascinating to follow for a number of years. -Antonio Galloni
