(62% cabernet sauvignon, 27% merlot, 10% cabernet franc and 1% petit verdot): Bright purple. Dark cherry and plum aromas are brightened by notes of peppery spices and minerals. More structured and less flamboyant than the Les Pavots, offering bitter cherry and dark berry flavors that coat the palate. Shows very good energy and cut on the finish, which features youthfully chewy tannins and a whiplash of dark fruit. Definitely decant this one if you can't keep your hands off it now. (JR)

Nice nose but slightly raisiny after taste. I think a little more time would have been good for this wine.

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."
