Beautiful, Balanced Effort from Paul Lato
2016 Peake Ranch Bellis Noir
(50% Syrah 50% Grenache)
The 2016 John Sebastiano Vineyard Bellis Noir checks in as an even split of Grenache and Syrah that was aged 18 months in neutral barrels. This medium ruby/purple-tinged red gives up rocking amounts of spiced black raspberries, olive, spring flowers, and bacon fat.
It is a brilliant bottle of wine.
