Jeb Dunnuck 97 Points (2020): “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.”
Paul Lato Notes: “Aromas of red and black cherries, violets, and rose petals leap from the glass. The palate is layered and plush, with a long, lingering finish. The 2021 “Victor Francis” is a gorgeous wine that showcases the beauty and complexity of the Sta. Rita Hills, and will only improve with age. “
