RATINGS

100Robert M. Parker Jr.

...lead pencil shavings, DRC-like forest floor, black raspberry, blackcurrant, Asian plum sauce, rose petal and sweet cherry characteristics... ...spectacular, multidimensional, prodigious Pinot Noir...

94James Suckling

Love the blueberries, raspberries and lemons on the nose, with hints of mussel shell. Full body with a solid core of fruit and a long, beautiful finish. A tangy, terracotta character. It goes and goes.

93Stephen Tanzer

Pure and silky in texture, offering sweet red fruit and spicecake flavors that put on weight with air.

91Wine Spectator

Intense and direct, with a tight, firm mix of red and dark berry, red and black licorice and hints of violet and boysenberry on the finish.

PRODUCER

Peter Michael

Of the many stories that accompany the founding of Napa Valley wineries, the story of the Peter Michael Winery is one of the most colorful and unexpected. Peter Michael was born in England, where he led several successful technology companies before being knighted in 1989 in recognition of his career in technology and other industries. In the same year he and his wife Maggie founded Peter Michael Winery in Calistoga. From the beginning it was Peter Michael’s mission to produce limited quantities of Chardonnay and a proprietary red that blended Old World winemaking with New World terroir. He has a talent for attracting talent, and some of the best winemakers in the Napa Valley have worked for him, including Helen Turley and Mark Aubert. All Peter Michael’s premier wines are bottled without filtration. There are 112 acres of vines, growing Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. About 100,000 bottles are produced annually. Winemaker is Nicolas Morlet, a native of Champagne and brother of Luc Morlet, Peter Michael’s former winemaker.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
