Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

(68% cabernet sauvignon, 22% merlot, 8% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot): Bright ruby. Ripe cherry, cassis, cured tobacco and vanilla on the nose, with a subtle herbal undertone. Fleshy dark fruit flavors are supported by gentle acidity and become spicier with aeration. Finishes smoky and gently tannic, with lingering dark berry and tobacco qualities. This drinks nicely right now. (JR)

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."
