2012 Peter Michael "Ma Danseuse" Fort Ross-Seaview Pinot Noir (1.5L) (Previously $900)

SKU #1213843 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The compelling 2012 Pinot Noir Ma Danseuse (1,480 cases) is even better than the 2013. Notes of lead pencil shavings, DRC-like forest floor, black raspberry, blackcurrant, Asian plum sauce, rose petal and sweet cherry characteristics are found in this spectacular, multidimensional, prodigious Pinot Noir that should drink well for 10-15+ years. The clonal material probably came from one of the DRC vineyards, so it is not surprising that. in this cool climate, with the great fruit purity California can achieve, there is a DRC-like resemblance.

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)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright ruby. Intensely perfumed aromas of raspberry liqueur, Asian spices and rose pastille, with a zesty mineral topnote. Pure and silky in texture, offering sweet red fruit and spicecake flavors that put on weight with air. Smoothly integrated acidity provides focus and lift to the finish, which is firmed by smooth tannins that fade quickly into the fruit.  (6/2014)

91 points Wine Spectator

 Intense and direct, with a tight, firm mix of red and dark berry, red and black licorice and hints of violet and boysenberry on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 1,490 cases made.  (9/2014)
