The 2003 Peter Michael Winery le Moulin Rouge Pinot Noir 750 ml is from the Knights Valley region of California. Peter Michael Winery, if you agree with Robert Parker, produces three Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir labels – Clos du Ciel, Ma Danseuse, and La Caprice - that can go toe-to-toe with Burgundy’s DRC…and sometimes win, especially if you consider the lower price point of the Peter Michael. Regularly scoring at least 98 points, these fabulous wines made by winemaker Nicolas Morlet come from their higher elevation Sonoma Coast “Seaview” vineyard. Equally fabulous, scoring high and reflecting an impeccable elegance, are their Chardonnay and Bordeaux blends, which come from both estate vineyards in Knights Valley, Oakville and Sonoma Coast, and from sourced sites in Alexander Valley, Santa Lucia Highlands, and Russian River. Sir Peter Michael is a successful worldwide entrepreneur and engineer with a portfolio of businesses from high tech to hospitality to commercial radio. Knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 1989 in recognition for the prosperity spawned by his work, Sir Peter Michael clearly has a knack for growing successful ventures...and his California wine business is no different.

The dark ruby/purple-colored 2003 Pinot Noir Le Moulin Rouge offers a gorgeous perfume of forest floor, creme de cassis, blackberries, and plums. Full-bodied with lovely purity, good underlying acidity, and a distinctive floral/forest floor character reminiscent of some Domaine de la Romanee-Conti grand crus, it will drink well for 7-8 years. - Robert Parker (12/2005)

Vinous 93 points

Good medium ruby. Sappy aromas of raspberry, strawberry, black cherry, black tea, rose petal and graphite, complicated by mint and tarry oak. Superconcentrated, creamy and sweet, with superb depth of crushed berry flavor. Finishes with substantial, broad tannins and terrific persistence. This remained on its lees without being racked until it was assembled for the bottling, which took place without fining or filtration in January of 25.- Stephen Tanzer (5/25)
