($110) Good pale greenish yellow. Bright, highly perfumed nose combines vineyard peach and minerals. Broad and deep yet almost magically light on its feet, with sexy, expressive flavors of orange rind, minerals and spices, plus suggestions of exotic fruits. As dense and ripe as this is, it leaves a very dry impression on the very long back end. From this winery's oldest vines (in Gauer Vineyard), where the Calera clone preserves acidity and produces big berries that are not particularly juicy owing to thick skins (the Belle-Cote is similarly from Calera clones).

With Sushi. Very intense and concentrated favors of hazelnut, brioche and butter dominating the typically intense tropical fruit flavors found in the Cuvée Indigene. Long and head. On its last year of good life

About This Producer


Peter Michael's estate vineyards (founded in 1982) are what make his wines truly exceptional. Sugarloaf Ranch sits high above Knights Valley in eastern Sonoma County, and from its rocky volcanic soil come Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The Alexander Mountain Estate Vineyard, above Alexander Valley, provides additional Chardonnay. All Peter Michael wines are site-driven single vineyard bottlings, whether from the estate or the limited sourced appellations. The line-up of estate wines is supplemented by a Pinot Noir from Pisoni Vineyard called "Le Moulin Rouge."
