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 2014
Brilliant ruby-red. High-pitched red fruit aromas are complicated by blood orange, Asian spices, tea rose and smoky minerals. Lively, sharply focused raspberry and floral pastille flavors gain intensity with aeration and pick up a deeper cherry pit quality. Leaves suave notes of black raspberry and musky herbs behind on the spicy, impressively persistent, focused finish, which barely hints at tannins.
