2001 Peter Michael "Le Moulin Rouge" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

SKU #1026324 95 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The extraordinary 2001 Pinot Noir Le Moulin Rouge continues to remind me of ripe vintages of the DRC Richebourg or La Tache. It is 100% destemmed, whereas those wines include 100% stems, but its extraordinary floral, wild mountain flower, black cherry, raspberry, and forest floor notes are noteworthy. It boasts a deep ruby color to the rim, gorgeous aromatics, a voluptuous palate, and a magnificent, 60-second finish. It is a beauty! (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2005)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dark-colored and uncommonly rich, almost Syrah-like in its density. Enormously complex and concentrated, with a sharply focused core of wild berry, blackberry, hints of espresso and hazelnut; smoky oak adds a wonderful dimension. *Highly Recommended* (JL) Inner quote mark (12/2003)

93 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Saturated medium ruby. Knockout nose combines wild blackberry and strawberry, minerals, white pepper, road tar and menthol. Hugely sweet and concentrated, in a rather masculine style. Flavors reminiscent of Vosne-Romanee: wild black fruits, dark chocolate, dark rose, espresso and herbal tea. Packed with material. Finishes with very broad, horizontal, fine tannins and superb length. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2003)
