Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 93

Bright ruby-red. Spice-accented aromas of strawberry and raspberry, with suggestions of dried rose and cola adding complexity. Juicy, palate-staining red fruit preserve flavors are lifted by a zesty mineral note and become spicier with air. Seems even more delicate than the Ma Danseuse but this is carrying 15.5% alcohol. Repeats the strawberry note on the very long, juicy, linear finish. This could use a little time in bottle to unwind.

From the Sonoma Coast vineyard with the most southerly exposure, the 2009 Pinot Noir Clos de Ciel (365 cases) was aged in 50% to 60% new Francois Freres barrels, and underwent a 5 to 7-day cold pre-fermentation maceration. A stunning, evolved effort, it boasts plenty of rose water, strawberry, lead pencil shavings and forest floor-like notes. This full-bodied, gorgeous Pinot should be drunk over the next decade.

Pleasantly earthy, with an intense minerally streak running through taut blueberry, wild berry and raspberry flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, turning juicy and succulent and ending with a complex dance of wet stone and berry.

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."
