On the nose, the 2009 Le Moulin Rouge is packed with intense
aromas of raspberry and red cherry, backed by notes of Earl Grey
tea. Opening further, the concentrated bouquet reveals hints of
strawberries and Grillottes cherries with cloves and cinnamon in
the background. Full in the mouth, the wine exhibits breadth and
depth, as the flavors stretch to a layered finish. Already showing
well, this wine will age for a decade.
"Firm, rich, intense and concentrated, this fragrant, well-structured red shows loamy earth, dried berry, mineral and cedar notes. Slow to unfold, this gains depth and dimension while retaining a tight framework."
"Deep ruby-red. Intense aromas of red berry preserves and cherry-cola, with complicating notes of dried rose, five-spice powder and white pepper. Ripe red berry flavors boast liqueur-like depth and intensity but there's an almost weightless quality to this wine that I find really intriguing, especially in light of its 16% (!) alcohol. Shows peppery spice and floral notes on the long, sappy, gently sweet finish."
International Wine Cellar
"The 2009 Pinot Noir Le Moulin Rouge Pisoni Vineyard emerges from the glass with soft, floral infused raspberries, hard candy and spices. It is a pretty, elegant wine that captures both the essence of the Pisoni Vineyard and the Peter Michael house style."
