Peter Michael Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands le Moulin Rouge 2002
First, intense aromas of raspberry and red cherry completed by hints of Earl Grey tea and graphite. Then, the bouquet opens up to additional aromas such as wild strawberries, violet and forest floor and a touch of cedar. Rich yet delicate, the mouthfeel is round, soft and intense, which leads to a very long and fruity finish. The 2002 Le Moulin Rouge drinks well young yet will age for a decade. The distinctive aromas and flavors of Le Moulin Rouge exhibit its coastal origin, the Pisoni Vineyard on the slopes of Santa Lucia Highlands in Monterey County. The coastal soil and climate contribute a dense yet delicate richness and add to the wine's complexity. The clone, originating from Burgundy's Vosnc-Romanee, is expressed in the wine's concentrated perfume and distinct varietal expression. Burgundian techniques, such as cold soaking and manual punchdowns in open top fermenters, were also incorporated into production to achieve color extraction and soft, round tannins. * 100% naturally fermented using native yeast * Aged in 50% new French oak barrels * Alcohol: 15% * Release Date: September 1st, 2005
