2016 Peake Ranch Vineyard Pinot Noir
Like the rolling hills of Santa Rosa Road, where our namesake vineyard is situated, this wine undulates to express unique aromatics and flavors over time. Beginning with darker notes of umami, moss and cedar, this complex wine then reveals a fruitier side with notes of tart cherry and pomegranate. Bright acid and minerality follow, and a surprisingly smooth dose of tannin finishes off this well-balanced beauty. A striking representation of how multi-faceted and vineyard-driven Pinot Noir can be, especially with its unique blend of heritage and new-age clones.
