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.

Bright yellow. Smoky pear and tangerine aromas gain power with air, taking on a richer yellow plum quality. Chewy, densely packed poached pear and peach pit flavors coat the palate, with dusty minerality providing shape. Finishes lush, creamy and long, with a repeating pear note and a hint of floral honey.
