($95) Bright ruby-red. Explosively perfumed scents of black raspberry, potpourri, patchouli and Asian spices, with slow-building smokiness. Deeply pitched red and dark fruit flavors are seriously concentrated but surprisingly energetic, with strong minerality providing back-end lift and cut. The floral quality repeats on the broad, sweet, very long finish.

Before their Sonoma Coast vineyards came into production, Peter Michael was purchasing fruit from the famed Pisoni Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands and making a delicious Pinot Noir called Le Moulin Rouge. The 2008 Pinot Noir Le Moulin Rouge Pisoni Vineyard exhibits a dark ruby hue along with notes of black currants, raspberries and forest floor. This medium-bodied, rich 2008 is best consumed over the next 5-6 years.

Rich and concentrated, yet this veers off into chunky, earthy, cedary flavors that are heavy and extracted. Extra-chewy and dense, this will require patience and understanding.

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."
