PEAKE RANCH PINOT NOIR, PEAKE RANCH VINEYARD, STA. RITA HILLS 2016
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
The 2016 Pinot Noir Peake Ranch Vineyard is wonderfully deep, nuanced and expressive. Translucent and yet deeply expressive, the 2016 is incredibly inviting. Rose petal, lavender and purplish berry fruit flesh out effortlessly. Orange peel, mint and chalk overtones add an attractive upper register that develops over time.
NVWE Notes: If youthfully reserved, the aromas of this intriguing new bottling display elegance, concentration and pretty fruit definition. The nose opens with focused scents of blueberry, dark boysenberry, black raspberry, teaberry, allspice, root beer bark, toffee and pink peppercorn. It proves as distinctive on the palate, where it adds earthy-spicy undertones to richer flavors of dark berry, dark plum, mace, star anise, sandalwood, bouillon and dried orange peel. The finish is long, and cutting cherry pit, red apple skin and hazelnut husk notes come in at the end giving it a slightly sinewy texture. 105 cases produced.
