Winemaker Notes

The 2000 Le Moulin Rouge is a rich garnet-colored wine with an expansive, fruit-filled nose of raspberries and strawberries with the subtle aroma of tea and roses. Flavors of fresh mint, rhubarb and raspberries.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The finest Pinot Noir yet produced by Peter Michael is the 1999 Pinot Noir Le Moulin Rouge. This wine is made from the well-known Pisoni Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands (a source of high quality grapes sold to a half-dozen or more wineries). According to the grower, the clone was smuggled into this country from one of the two most famous vineyards in Vosne-Romanee.
Range: 90-93
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Bold, rich and concentrated, bordering on syrupy, with dense boysenberry, blueberry and huckleberry fruit that's intense and succulent. Shows a hint of heat on the finish. Excellent balance for a wine this size.

Peter Michael Winery Image
In 1982 Sir Peter and Lady Margaret Michael built the Peter Michael Winery on a square mile of rocky volcanic ridges that form the western face of Mount St. Helena in Knights Valley, Sonoma County, California. The estate vineyards rest on steep hillsides ranging in elevation from 1100 to nearly 2000 feet. Of the nearly 600 estate acres, only about 20% are planted to grapes. Peter Michael Winery is best known for single-vineyard and estate grown Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and a Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The Peter Michael Winery remains true to its commitment to growing classic grape varieties in small mountain vineyards in order to produce great wines using classical winemaking techniques. Given this covenant to the product, only a limited quantity will ever be available.

Perhaps the most highly regarded appellation within Monterey County, Santa Lucia Highlands AVA benefits from a combination of warm morning sunshine and brisk afternoon breezes, allowing grapes to ripen slowly and fully. The result is concentrated, flavorful wines that retain their natural acidity. Wineries here do not shy away from innovation, and place a high priority on sustainable viticultural practices.

The climatic conditions here are perfectly suited to the production of ripe, rich Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. These Burgundian varieties dominate an overwhelming percentage of plantings, though growers have also found success with Syrah, Riesling and Pinot Gris.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
