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 ruby. Sexy aromas of black raspberry, cherry-cola, star anise and vanilla, with a smoky nuance coming up with air. Juicy and expansive, with impressive clarity and power to its dark berry and floral pastille flavors. Finishes with excellent floral lift and striking persistence. This pinot, which was made from fruit that was sorted three times according to Morlet, offers a very suave blend of richness and vivacity.
