Peter Michael Ma Danseuse Pinot Noir 2012
Wine AdvocateThe compelling 2012 Pinot Noir Ma Danseuse (1,480 cases) is even better than the 2013. Notes of lead pencil shavings, DRC-like forest floor, black raspberry, blackcurrant, Asian plum sauce, rose petal and sweet cherry characteristics are found in this spectacular, multidimensional, prodigious Pinot Noir that should drink well for 10-15+ years. The clonal material probably came from one of the DRC vineyards, so it is not surprising that. in this cool climate, with the great fruit purity California can achieve, there is a DRC-like resemblance.
Wine SpectatorIntense and direct, with a tight, firm mix of red and dark berry, red and black licorice and hints of violet and boysenberry on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 1,490 cases made.
