I want to annotate certain points on my graphs, such as peaks in sessions or negative sentiment, to provide depth in an easy-to-understand way.

Not yet. Maybe go to the feature request page? It's only in GA.

I have this on my roadmap for Da Vinci: enhanced annotations for/between GA, GTM and Data Studio. This is the next thing I'm working on.

it's the next thing on my roadmap because enhanced annotations will also be used for campaign management and tracking digital analytics tasks & analysis process. Expect something by end of summer. In the meantime, I will release a few minor enhancements and tweaks.

by "enhanced annotations", I understand that basic annotations already exist? Does it currently work for Datastudio ?

There are currently no annotations in Data Studio, basic ones in GA, and notes in GTM - but nothing is integrated and what is found in GA & GTM is very limited.

Sorry Holly, still working on it. I have reengineered the core of Da Vinci which will allow me to accelerate the roadmap and add a ton of features. I'm almost done bringing back the current features into the new core and I will proceed with more advanced features right after that.
