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 ruby. Vibrant red berry and blood orange aromas, with sexy potpourri and incense qualities gaining power in the glass. Lively, high-pitched raspberry and bitter cherry flavors stain the palate, with dusty minerals providing spine and cut. The floral note comes back on a long, alluringly sweet finish and clings with impressive tenacity. Open-knit and delicious right now.
