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.

Light gold. Pungent, assertively perfumed aromas of poached pear, dried flowers, vanilla bean and iodine, with a smoky topnote. Lush, palate-staining orchard fruit flavors show outstanding depth and intensity, picking up spiciness with aeration. Refuses to let up on the finish, leaving vibrant mineral and floral notes behind.
