    April 3, 2015 - Cloudy appearance. Nice golden straw green color. Very tropical end of the spectrum. Mango, apricot and pineapple. Good depth and power could use a touch more freshness.

    December 27, 2014 - On Lot 10 wine dinner (On Lot 10): Pours a pale straw color like sugarcane water. Thick long legs. On the nose, nice bouquet of butter, creme brulee, stewed peaches, pineapple, tropical fruits and honey. On the palate, structure is well defined with a little heat from the alcohol. Great extraction. Flavors of mint, sugarcane, citrus and some eucalyptus. Quite fat but well defined. Finish is very long with a hint of acidity in the end for balance. Very nice.

    May 9, 2014 - A Visit to Peter Michael Winery: From the blocks of the estate vineyard planted to Old Wente clone, bottled unfined & unfiltered, and it shows, having a slight cloudy quality and quite a few crystals. Aged in a combination of new, used and neutral oak, about one-third each. Aromas of banana and coconut, tropical fruit, melon and citrus. Full-bodied and rich but at the same time precise and elegant, featuring flavors of vanilla, hazelnut, lemon curd, melon and white peach. 93-94 pts.

    May 9, 2014 - Tasted at the winery after a beautiful vineyard tour. Beautiful tropical nose with lemon curd, honey, pear, lemon oil and creamy oak.
