    Peter Michael produces a Bordeaux-like, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon called Les Pavots. The current release, the 1990, is a beautifully made, blackcurrant-scented wine with medium body, wonderful integrated acidity, and a rich, concentrated finish. It could easily be confused with a top class Medoc given its structure and finesse allied to intense flavors. It is not close to maturity. While it is accessible, I recommend 3-5 years of cellaring; it is capable of lasting for two decades.

    Similarly drying to the 1989'perhaps even more so'with the leathery flavors showing a bitter edge. Good, but nothing more.

  • 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."
