Le Caprice can be identified by its deep red ruby color and bright
crimson tinge. Delicate red forest fruit is the signature of this
vineyard, with aromas of raspberry, currant, red cherry, strawberry,
fresh leather and graphite. Refined and intense, 2009 Le Caprice expresses in the palate a wonderful concentration of red fruits with subtle notes of leather and graphite supported by a silky texture and a lingering aromatic finish.
"Well-structured, with a core of pure, ripe plum and blackberry fruit that's fleshy, supple and medium- to full-bodied. This is deeply concentrated and firms up nicely on the finish, where a touch of fresh earth folds in."
"The 2009 Pinot Noir Le Caprice PMW Estate is a gorgeous wine graced with expressive aromatics, articulate fruit and lovely overall balance. Raspberries, strawberries, freshly cut roses and spices are woven together beautifully in this super-refined, impeccable wine. Striking, sweet floral notes linger in the empty glass. The clones are Calera and a suitcase clone from Vosne-Romanee."

"Bright ruby. Higher in pitch than the Moulin Rouge, displaying wild strawberry and raspberry along with a sexy floral nuance and an exotic note of nectarine. Shows darker berry fruit and cherry in the mouth, picking up notes of licorice and candied flowers with air. Deeply fruity but energetic pinot with excellent finishing clarity and persistent spiciness."
