The refinement and aromatic intensity of an Oakville wine

The estate

After searching for the ideal terroir for some 6 years, Sir Peter Michael and Lady Michael acquired 630 acres of volcanic ridges on the western slope of Mount St. Helens in Knights Valley in 1982.

This estate marks the fulfilment of one man's dream. A long-time lover of Bordeaux and Burgundy wines, Sir Peter Michael's ambition from the outset was to turn this estate into a benchmark among fine Californian wines.

Renowned for their elegance and produced in limited quantities, the wines of Peter Michael Winery are among the most beautiful references in the American wine world.

The vineyard

Nose

Palate

An ample and round attack precedes a structured, powerful mouth with fine tannins. Throughout the wine tasting, the palate exudes aromas of black tea and cocoa powder. The persistent palate seduces with its elegance.
