2010 Peter Michael Pinot Noir Le Moulin Rouge
Leading with intense aromas of blackberry, the 2010 Le Moulin Rouge follows with hints of Earl Grey tea. Opening further, the bouquet reveals additional aromas of strawberry, Griotte cherry with clove and cinnamon in the background. Intense in the mouth,
the wine blends richness and delicacy as the flavors stretch to a long fruit-filled finish.
This beautiful wine drinks well young yet will age for a decade.

"Pure, rich and polished, gliding along the palate, with a delicious core of blueberry, wild berry and raspberry fruit that's spicy and minerally, with a touch of loaminess. Gains a lift on the finish. Drink now through 2021. 450 cases made. –JL"

"The 2010 Pinot Noir Le Moulin Rouge Pisoni Vineyard is gorgeous. Like all of the Peter Michael 2010 Pinots, there is plenty of richness here, but these vines planted in 1990 seem to have been more resistant than the estate's own younger vines in this challenging year. Black cherries, violets, licorice and minerals are some of the many notes that flow from this plush, dense Pinot. I can't wait to taste this once it is in bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.
I tasted a large number of wines at Peter Michael. Overall, the 2009 reds made the most positive impression on this visit. The 2009 Chardonnays are very strong. I am less enamored with the 2010 Chardonnays, as they clearly show the ill-effects of a challenging growing season, which at Peter Michael yielded very concentrated whites with slightly higher than normal alcohol levels and an element of heaviness that is out of character. Winemaker Nick Morlet describes 2010 as a difficult year. Bud break was a full month late. High winds and rain during the flowering resulted in high amounts of shatter and yields that are dramatically lower than normal. Morlet describes 2009 as a vintage where everything ripened quickly and at the same time. This lineup includes several wines that are being released for the first time, including a trio of Pinot Noirs from estate-owned coastal vineyards planted in 2006 and 2007. It will be fascinating to see how those wines develop as the vines acquire age. The newest wine in the ever-expanding Peter Michael stable is a new Cabernet Sauvignon from the former Showket vineyard that will make its debut with the 2011 vintage and that will be called Le Chevalier. I hope to taste it soon. I tasted the 2010 Chardonnays and Pinots from barrel. Those wines were scheduled to be bottled in February 2012. The 2009 Chardonnays and Pinots were bottled in late January/early February 2011." (Wine Advocate #199 Feb 2012 Antonio Galloni Drink: 2013 - 2018)
インターナショナル・ワイン・セラー 92ポイント (Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar)
"Bright ruby-red. Much more pungent and dark in character than the Sonoma wines, displaying scents and flavors of black raspberry, cherry-cola and candied plum. Rich and expansive, with a supple texture and impressive depth. Finishes with very good energy and length, leaving cherry and smoke notes behind." (May/June 2012)
