    Why is Pinot Noir the heartbreak grape?

    This variety is famously temperamental, reacting sensitively to its surroundings and showing variability across different vintages. Its unpredictable nature contributes to its challenging, yet intriguing reputation.

    What makes Pinot Noir unique?

    Pinot Noir's delicate thin skins and minimal phenolic compounds result in wines that are generally light in color, medium-bodied, and low in tannins. These wines can experience inconsistent aging periods and 'dumb phases,' where their flavors become muted. Typically, young Pinot Noir wines exhibit red fruit aromas like cherries, raspberries, and strawberries.

    What is the scientific name for Pinot Noir grapes?

    Vitis vinifera 'Pinot Noir' (O/B)

    Critical Acclaim

    JD 95
    Jeb Dunnuck
    The 2019 Pinot Noir Victor Francis Peake Ranch Vineyard is classic Sta. Rita Hills with its savory, salty, spicy, and even meaty aromas and flavors, which turn more floral and exotic with time in the glass. It shows some olive and brine as well, yet its core of ripe red and black fruits is always present, and it's textured, medium to full-bodied, flawlessly balanced, and lengthy on the palate.

    James Suckling
    The aromas of roses and ripe strawberries with so much perfume. Medium-bodied with firm, fine tannins that spread across the palate and integrate nicely. Fresh, vivid and tight. This will age beautifully.
    VIN 91
    Vinous
    The 2019 Pinot Noir Peake Ranch Vineyard Victor Francis is one of the more reticent wines in this range. It is distinguished by its red-toned fruit profile and spiced/floral bouquet. On the palate, though, the wine feels a bit narrow and taut. It will be interesting to see if bottle age brings out more mid-palate pliancy and overall depth.
