2020 Paul Lato Peake Ranch Pinot Noir...$74.99 / 750ml
The 2020 Pinot Noir Victor Francis Peake Ranch Vineyard comes from the eastern, warmer side of the appellation and was destemmed and brought up in 75% new French oak. It has plenty of ripe cherry and framboise-like fruit as well as medium to full body, notes of dried herbs, flowers, and loamy earth, silky tannins, terrific overall balance, and one heck of a great finish. An incredibly complete, balanced, seamless Pinot Noir, it's going to drink spectacularly well for a solid 10-12 years.
