Peter Michael Sauvignon Blanc l'Apres-midi Sonoma County 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense and multi-layered, the bouquet is dominated by honeysuckle, hawthorn, gooseberry, lime, white flesh peach, William pear and dried apricot, completed by touches of acacia and candied anise, greengage, quince and wet stone. The strong mineral background, a stamp of the estate, balances the overall richness, giving a superb refinement. The finish is layered, very long and elegant. Built to age, the wine is already revealing itself. 96% Sauvignon Blanc, 4% Sémillon.

From the beginning, the wine growing philosophy was modeled on the French tradition infused with a few modern influences: One, the vineyard terroir would be the single most important feature. Two, the wines would be elegant rather than overstated. Three, there would be a hundred-year commitment to the development of a great estate. Read less
