2012 Peter Michael "Le Caprice" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1158704 98 points James Suckling

 The purity of fruit here is impressive, with raspberry, iodine and hints of mussel shell. Créme de framboise. Full body with firm, silky tannins and a long finish. The aromatics are crazy here. Great tannin structure. The finish comes out of nowhere with aniseed.  (10/2014)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Lusher, more expansive and savory, the 2012 Pinot Noir La Caprice (1,485 cases) possesses stunning richness, and is more approachable and exuberant than the 2013 with the vintage’s boisterousness and heady, intense fruit well-displayed. The color is a dense ruby/plum/purple, and the wine exhibits lots of red and blackcurrant, dark cherry and foresty notes. It, too, should drink well for 10-15 years. (RP)  (12/2014)

93 points Wine Spectator

 While tight and tannic, this slowly unfolds to reveal a more supple, graceful core of plum and wild berry fruit that's firmly tannic without being weighty, ending with a charming finish that echoes the wilted rose suppleness of the core flavors. (JL)  (9/2014)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Saturated ruby. Black raspberry, incense, rose oil and Asian spices on the nose, with a note of cola gaining strength with air. Sappy and concentrated, with sweet red and dark berry flavors becoming spicier with air. Finishes with impressive energy and lingering red fruit and floral pastille qualities that are unencumbered by tannins. (ST)  (5/2014)
