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.
93(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2010
($110) Bright yellow-gold. Precise, high-pitched aromas of citrus peel, quinine, white flowers and tarragon. Juicy, fine-grained and youthfully imploded, with silky pear and orange flavors and some youthful acidity accentuating the intensely mineral quality of this pungent wine. Not at all a fleshy style but seriously concentrated. Finishes tight and extremely persistent, with continuing floral and mineral qualities.
