Wine Advocate | Rating: 93Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Le Moulin Rouge Pisoni Vineyard is scented of crushed red cherries, cranberries and pomegranate with hints of violets, cloves and cinnamon toast. Medium to full-bodied, the generous fruit is nicely supported by velvety tannins and a lively backbone, finishing long. This was a barrel sample and 460 cases are expected to be bottled.Author: Lisa Perrotti-Brown
