PEAKE RANCH PINOT NOIR, JOHN SEBASTIANO VINEYARD, STA. RITA HILLS 2015
San Francisco Wine Panel
NVWE Notes: This youthful wine already shows hints of of the finesse to come, in aromas that fan-out as a genteel perfume of ripe Bing cherry, black cherry, dark boysenberry, blood orange, raspberry coulis, red currant, Santa Rosa plum, orange peel tea, coriander seed, hazelnut and star anise. Sour cherry, black cherry and zesty plum hold center-stage on the palate and join some tannic grip to bring a piquant edge to the mouth-feel. The finish is full of sweet-natured, lingering fruit counter-pointed by drying notes of star anise and nut husk. Terrific now with seared duck breast, it should grow ever better for another five years and beyond. Another knockout by winemaker Paul Lato. 325 cases produced.
The 2015 Pinot Noir John Sebastiano Vineyard is a racy, voluptuous wine. Unapologetically flamboyant, it exudes depth and pedigree. Dark red/purplish fruit, wild flowers, mint, lavender and sweet French oak flesh out in this creamy, super-expressive Pinot. This is another superb wine from Peake Ranch.
