Peter Michael 2004 Ma Belle-Fille

    Tasting notes: A dazzling composition of crisp apple and sweet pear mingled with a mouthwatering crème brûlée. Lively acidity shows, with a long, layered finish. Worth knowing: Sir Peter Michael and his wife, Lady Michael, had always planned to indulge oenophile enthusiasm by purchasing vineyards in France; however, a business trip to Silicon Valley persuaded the couple to purchase a square mile of rocky volcanic soil on the western face of Mount St. Helena in Knights Valley. In 1982, they established their winery, which produces small quantities of premium single-vineyard cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir, sauvignon blanc, and chardonnay.
