Single Vineyard Pinot Noir
Viewing this page verifies the origin and authenticity for this bottle of 2019 Ma Danseuse Estate Pinot Noir 750ml.
The 2019 Peter Michael Winery Ma Danseuse Estate Pinot Noir (ma dans-oos), French for “My Dancer,” an ode by Sir Peter in honor of Lady Maggie Michael, as they met on the dance floor. The vineyard’s coastal soil and climate contribute a dense, yet delicate richness, and add to the wine’s complexity. It benefits from both the cooling influence of the Pacific Ocean over the ridges to the west and the mild sunny mountain climate. The soil of the vineyard is a composite of clay, silt, and volcanic gravels, which gives polished tannins, body, and a hint of graphite-mineral. Ma Danseuse is the most feminine of our trio of Pinot Noir vineyards.
Winemaker Tasting Notes:
Dark ruby-colored, ‘Ma Danseuse’ exudes an extraordinary perfume of Asian spices, clove and dried herbs along with fresh raspberry and blackberry. Full-bodied with savory layers of flavor reminiscent of leather, earth, graphite and sandalwood, enlivened by notes of violets, rose petal, and strawberry coulis. A silky entry evolves into an explosive midpalate that is seamless throughout with great length, providing a long finish.
