"Leafy accents abound in this savory style, which features dried cherry and berry flavors. Features notes of green herbs and medium-grained tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 318 cases made.–KM ' (WS)

"Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir John Sebastiano Vineyard has vibrant red and black cherries and mulberry notes plus underlying lavender, forest floor and rose petals. Medium-bodied and with a wonderful intensity of fruit and freshness, it has plush tannins and good length." (WA)

"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." (VM)

"Showing a darker slant in its currants, cassis, smoked earth and licorice, the 2015 Pinot Noir John Sebastiano Vineyard is beautifully concentrated, rich and layered, with a silky, seamless texture. While the straight Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir is selected with the idea of making an upfront, approachable wine, this cuvée is selected from lots that have the most backbone and structure. There’s 318 cases produced." (JD)

"There's a strong smoky character to this bottling, with pork roast and hickory smoke rising above the cranberry compote and orange rind aromas on the nose. The smoke extends to the sip as well, but there's also a strong and tangy pomegranate and sour cherry-flavor profile." (WE)
