Winemaker's Notes:

The Pinot Noir for our Le Moulin Rouge is grown on the slopes of the Santa Lucia Highlands in Monterey County. The vineyard’s coastal soil and climate contribute a dense yet delicate richness and add to the wine’s complexity. The clone, originating from Burgundy’s Vosne-Romanée, is expressed in the wine’s concentrated perfume and distinct varietal expression. The vintage’s small clusters and berries have allowed for a wine of concentration and intensity. Along with fully ripe fruit, manual punch downs and barrel ageing have added to the wine’s gorgeous, silky tannins.

Tasting Notes:

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 toasted wild strawberries, grillottes cherries and pencil lead. Rich yet delicate, the mouthfeel is round, soft and intense leading to a very long and fruit filled finish. The 2004 Le Moulin Rouge drinks well young yet will age for a decade.
