Peter Michael Winery Le Caprice Pinot Noir 2012

$129.99

Limited new release from cult producer Peter Michael.96 Points Robert Parker: "The deep ruby/plum-colored 2012 Pinot Noir La Caprice reveals aromas of rose petals, strawberries, raspberries, black currants and a hint of blueberries. This gorgeously rich, potentially complex Pinot Noir should drink well for 10-15 years." Le Caprice, French for “The Freak,” as in “of nature,” aptly de scribes this rough vineyard terroir. The name is also an ode to the fickle nature of the Pinot Noir grape. Situated between 1,025 and 1,450 feet above sea level on steep mountain slopes, some exceed ing fifty percent in grade, the vineyard faces east and northeast.  It benefits from both the cooling influence of the Pacific Ocean over the ridges to the west and the mild sunny mountain climate. The soil of the vineyard is a composite of clay, silt and volcanic gravels, which help the wine display polished tannin, body and a hint of graphite-minerality. Le Caprice is the fruitiest of our trio of Pinot Noir vineyards.

16/20 (88/100) Мощное, спиртуозное вино с ароматами клубники, красных лесных ягод и ванили. Высокая кислотность и мягкие танины. Качественное вино, но своей цены не оправдывает.

Yummy for my Tummy!!! Plum-ish in color, full nose of red fruit. Smooth, rich and graceful in the mouth. Paired amazing well with corned beef and cabbage. Just a stunning wine and a great pairing.
