  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 97

    A strong effort, the 2012 Chardonnay Mon Plaisir (1,500 cases) exhibits notes of honeysuckle, lychee nuts, passion flowers, orange marmalade and white peaches. This full-bodied white possesses fabulous fruit intensity, stunning purity and a profound finish. Drink this beauty over the next decade.

    A truly exotic style, ultrarich and well-oaked, showing off toast and smoke notes. This is dense, with apricot, fig, crAme brA¯lAce and marmalade flavors. A truly exceptional wine that combines power with restraint."

    Bright yellow. Floral honey, melon and poached pear on the nose, with suave floral and mineral accents adding vivacity. Fleshy yet lively and sharply delineated, offering intense Meyer lemon and yellow apple flavors and a smoky mineral quality. The dry, mineral-driven finish shows excellent clarity and power, leaving a honeysuckle note behind.

    Dense, powerful and rich. A popular wine at our Napa tasting.

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."
