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.
92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2014
(50% new oak): Saturated ruby. Black raspberry, incense, rose oil and Asian spices on the nose, with a note of cola gaining strength with air. Sappy and concentrated, with sweet red and dark berry flavors becoming spicier with air. Finishes with impressive energy and lingering red fruit and floral pastille qualities that are unencumbered by tannins.
