Peter Michael Le Caprice Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
To the eye, the 2017 Le Caprice offers a red ruby color with bright crimson highlights. The wine shows intense aromas of raspberry liqueur, red cherry and blackberry mixed with Russian leather, violet and graphite. The palate is expressive and delivers Griotte cherry, sandalwood, raspberry, wild strawberry, forest floor, hazelnut, and leather, with a background of raspberry liqueur. The texture is fresh, round, and mineral driven. The wine is already expressive and will continue to develop for at least a decade.
Floral-accented crushed red currant, plum and raspberry flavors are crunchy and well-structured in this red. Flint and hot stone details emerge on the finish, with savory notes. Drink now through 2024.
