Unique aromas of ripe dark fruits with grilled seaweed, iodine and sea spray notes. Medium body, superfine tannins and bright acidity. Agile. Persistent finish. Stone and blue fruits. Counterintuitive wine. (6/2016)

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. (WK)  (1/2017)

The 2013 Pinot Noir La Caprice is absolutely fabulous, with soft, velvety texture, forest floor, red and black currants, some raspberries, spring flowers, roasted meats and herbs. A gorgeously rich wine, it is medium to full-bodied and capable of lasting 10-15+ years. The steepest slope of the three Pinot Noirs is called Ma Danseuse, an acknowledgment to Sir Peter Michael's wife, who was a ballerina. (RP)  (12/2015)
