Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

Firm, rich, intense and concentrated, this fragrant, well-structured red shows loamy earth, dried berry, mineral and cedar notes. Slow to unfold, this gains depth and dimension while retaining a tight framework.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

Deep ruby-red. Intense aromas of red berry preserves and cherry-cola, with complicating notes of dried rose, five-spice powder and white pepper. Ripe red berry flavors boast liqueur-like depth and intensity but there's an almost weightless quality to this wine that I find really intriguing, especially in light of its 16% (!) alcohol. Shows peppery spice and floral notes on the long, sappy, gently sweet finish.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

The 2009 Pinot Noir Moulin Rouge Pisoni Vineyard, which was harvested on September 6th, exhibits lots of dark blue and black raspberry fruit, some minerality, medium to full body, and a compact, still austere finish. It will benefit from more time in the bottle, and should drink well for 6-8 years.

Site Blog: Foodie Confidential Color is light and typical Pinot. Nose: muted red fruit and menthol. Palate: tobacco, dark red fruit and menthol. Burgundian style and not fruit forward. Long finish. Balance and structure perfect.

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."

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
