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.

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."
