Tasting Notes

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, pale yellow. Vibrant aromas of citrus peel, green apple, gooseberry, mint and crushed stone; I was reminded of Loire Valley chenin and Chablis. Then fat but quite firm in the mouth, with lime, lemon drop and honeysuckle flavors complicated by a metallic whiff (this is fermented in stainless steel and does not go through malolactic fermentation). Almost oily in texture and yet pungently fresh, with a solid spine of acidity running through it. A wine like this could stand in for the sorbet course." (May/June 08) 90 points Robert Parker: "The other white wine is hardly an afterthought at Peter Michael, and fortunately 2,000+ cases are made of their blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Semillon. The 2006 Sauvignon Blanc l’Apres Midi is incredibly perfumed, exhibiting notes of figs, melons, oranges, and lemon grass. Fresh, medium-bodied, and a perfect food wine, this wine should drink nicely for 1-2 years. This 121-acre estate with 114 producing acres of vineyard all located in Knight’s Valley continues to be at the top of their game and I can’t recommend the wines highly enough." (12/07)
