2018 Peter Michael "Le Moulin Rouge" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

SKU #1466355 95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Pinot Noir Le Moulin Rouge Pisoni Vineyard is fabulous. Bright and floral, the 2018 shows a level of finesse that is unusual for this Santa Lucia Highlands site. Red/purplish berry fruit, lavender, chocolate cake, rose petal, mint and spice are all finely delineated in this very pretty, nuanced Pinot Noir. Harvest took place on September 18. The fruit was entirely destemmed, and the wine spent 16 months in oak, 50% new. This is one of the finest vintages of Moulin Rouge I have tasted. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This label comes from the Pisoni vineyard in Santa Lucia Highlands. Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2018 Pinot Noir Le Moulin Rouge prances out of the glass with vibrant notes of wild strawberries, fresh raspberries and cranberry sauce plus suggestions of lavender, wild sage and tilled soil. The medium to full-bodied palate is elegantly styled with bold freshness and fine-grained tannins supporting the red berry flavors, finishing long with an herbal lift. (LPB) Inner quote mark (2/2021)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Offers violet and floral aromas, with buoyant cherry tart and raspberry components, accented by flinty notes. Fresh minerality and crushed cooking spice details emerge on the finish. (KM) Inner quote mark (10/2020)
