  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

    Impressive and succulent, bursting with fleshy apricot and peach cobbler notes, presenting a crisp, clear line of acidity and a touch of minerality. The complexity crescendos on the long finish, with highlights of spice, dried flowers and lemon verbena. Drink now through 2020. 2,810 cases made.

    When I was tasting at Peter Michael, the intermezzo, so to speak, was their exquisite 2014 Sauvignon Blanc l'Apres Midi, which is 95% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Semillon. They make a good bit of this (2,810 cases), and this has always been one of the reference points in Northern California for Sauvignon. Loads of almost Loire Valley-like honeydew melons, fig and caramelized citrus jump from the glass of this fresh, medium-bodied, beautifully fruity and intense wine, which shows great purity and is once again a terrific success. This wine tends to age much better than most people think, but I'm still a believer in drinking it during its first 2-3 years of life.

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."
