"Wonderful perfumes with blackberry, cherry and cloves. Violet. Full body, extremely focused and clear fruit. Bright and vivid. Crunchy and juicy. Precise and fruity. Love the layers and flavors. Irresistible. Drink or hold."

Peter Michael Winery, 2014 Peter Michael Pinot Noir 'Ma Danseuse'

"The production of the 2014 Pinot Noirs ranges from a low of 543 cases for the Clos du Ciel to a high of 1,227 cases for the Ma Danseuse. All of these Pinot Noirs are made from what is simply called a Vosne-Romanée clone, which is code, I expect, for a vineyard such as Romanée-Conti or La Tâche, but no one�Äôs talking. The 2014 Pinot Noir Ma Danseuse is from the coldest of the three Sonoma Coast sites that are now part of the Ft. Ross-Seaview AVA and is their largest production cuvée. Plenty of forest floor, raspberry, black cherry and floral notes are present in this wine, which has seemingly put on a lot of weight and texture since I had it last year. This comes from a 1,000- to 1,300-foot elevation and the resulting Pinot is Burgundian, classic, rich and capable of lasting 15 or more years, possibly longer."

The fruit for Ma Danseuse is grown in specific blocks of our Fort Ross-Seaview estate vineyard. This is the northern most section of the vineyard. It is also the coolest, as the marine influence coming from the north, following the Gualala River, is most concentrated here. In addition, Ma Danseuse faces subtly more toward the north and therefore receives slightly less sun exposure than Clos du Ciel or Le Caprice. Ma Danseuse translates to "My Dancer", and was named by Sir Peter in honor of Lady Michael. The two met on the dance floor. Ma Danseuse is the most feminine of the botttlings, aptly reflecting the charm of its namesake.
