Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 93

Dark ruby. Heady aromas of raspberry and Asian spices are complemented by deeper notes of cherry-cola and licorice. Zesty, finely etched red berry flavors stain the palate, with juicy acidity and a suave floral element providing lift. The sweet red fruit flavors expand on the extremely long finish, picking up notes of candied rose and blood orange. This spicy, energetic, very pure pinot has the balance and depth to age.

The perfect 2010 Pinot Noir Clos de Ciel (330 cases) is a dead-ringer for the 1990 DRC La Tache. This could be a game-changing Pinot Noir that sets the wine world upside down given its spectacular quality. It boasts a dense ruby/plum/purple color as well as a big, sweet bouquet of licorice, spring flowers, black currants, black cherries, forest floor and raspberries. Deep and full with a flawless attack, mid-section and finish, it builds incrementally on the palate, then lingers for 40-45 seconds on the finish. It reveals an ethereal lightness despite its intensity of flavor. This mind-boggling wine will keep for 10-15 years.

Smooth, rich and creamy, with layers of blackberry, plum and blueberry. Turns silky midpalate and then ends with the right touch of tannins, with a touch of smoky oak.

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."
