Deep red-ruby color. Knockout nose combines raspberry, earth, meat, flowers and crushed stone. Ripe, fine-grained and wonderfully smooth but not soft, with intriguing flavors of wild strawberry, chocolate, minerals, graphite and Earl Grey tea. This reminded me of a Marcassin pinot but with more primary fruit showing. Finishes very long and minerally. The 2004 growing season was quite hot at Pisoni Vineyard, noted Luc Morlet, who added that the Pisoni family was the first in the area to pick.

The 2004 Pinot Noir Le Moulin Rouge, which has put on considerable weight since last year, reveals incredible aromas of forest floor, black raspberries, cherries, and sweet currants. A beautiful texture, broad, savory mouthfeel, and stunning finish suggest this will be a profound Pinot to drink over the next decade.

Bold, rich and concentrated, bordering on syrupy, with dense boysenberry, blueberry and huckleberry fruit that's intense and succulent. Shows a hint of heat on the finish. Excellent balance for a wine this size. 550 cases made.

About This Producer


Peter Michael's estate vineyards (founded in 1982) are what make his wines truly exceptional. Sugarloaf Ranch sits high above Knights Valley in eastern Sonoma County, and from its rocky volcanic soil come Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The Alexander Mountain Estate Vineyard, above Alexander Valley, provides additional Chardonnay. All Peter Michael wines are site-driven single vineyard bottlings, whether from the estate or the limited sourced appellations. The line-up of estate wines is supplemented by a Pinot Noir from Pisoni Vineyard called "Le Moulin Rouge."
