Challen 2016 Peake Ranch Vineyard Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills)

There is an earthy hearty core that seems to come from this new vineyard on the eastern edge of the Sta. Rita Hills, and it shows well in this bottling. Aromas of turned soil and porky game meet with pepper, thyme and strong red fruit on the nose, while the palate offers exotic cherry, mulberry, tangy herbs and more animal tones. Matt Kettmann
