About Peter Michael Winery
Appropriately enough, Sir Peter Michael, an Englishman who made his name in electronics, established his vineyard in Sonoma County's Knights Valley. From the moment he purchased the property in 1982, Sir Michael has insisted upon an Old-World approach to New World wine. Terroir is paramount here, along with elegance in favor of overstatement.

Deep red-ruby color. Knockout nose combines raspberry, earth, meat, flowers and crushed stone. Ripe, fine-grained and wonderfully smooth but not soft, with intriguing flavors of wild strawberry, chocolate, minerals, graphite and Earl Grey tea. This reminded me of a Marcassin pinot but with more primary fruit showing. Finishes very long and minerally. The 2004 growing season was quite hot at Pisoni Vineyard, noted Luc Morlet, who added that the Pisoni family was the first in the area to pick.
