Peter Michael Winery, Le Caprice Estate Pinot Noir 2013
The Peter Michael wines are probably the most exciting Pinot Noirs being made in the Fort Ross-Seaview, benefitting from impeccably chosen vine material (from a famous vineyard in Vosne-Romanée) and attentive viticulture. La Caprice is the most supple and ethereal of the Pinots, bursting with perfumed notes of rose petal, clove, cumin and black fruit. The palate is expansive and savoury, framed by fine tannins and juicy acids.
