Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92(+?)

($75) Good bright, pale yellow. Subdued but pure aromas of lemon drop, grapefruit, pineapple and hazelnut, complicated by exotic lichee and rose oil. Supple and quite subtle in the mouth but with plenty of fat and breadth. Very stony and suave chardonnay, with a long, spicy finish. This, too, really needs a bit of patience.

Medium gold. Big aromas of marmalade, white currant, honeysuckle, and tropical fruit notes. More similar to a Burgundy grand Cru than a Cali Chardonnay. Short mid-palate indicative of the 2006 Chardonnay. But great wine given the vintage.

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."
