Our goal is to present a true reflection of the vineyard terroir in the glass. The differences between the wines are achieved by allowing the vineyard's character to show through, not by winemaking contrivance.

James SucklingA cabernet with clay, iron, meat, red soil and fresh fruit, as well as hints of fresh herbs. Full to medium body with fine tannins and a sweet-berry and spice character. So attractive now but will improve for many years to come. 76% cabernet sauvignon and 24% cabernet franc. This is the first vintage.

Wine AdvocatePeter Michael's newest offering, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Au Paradis, is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Cabernet Franc, the latter coming from the great red soils on the eastern hillsides that were first made famous by Dalla Valle's Maya. The Au Paradis offers lots of black currant, cedar wood, unsmoked cigar tobacco and vanillin notes in a dense, full-bodied, impressive style, especially for a 2011. Sweet tannins auger well for drinking this cuvee now and over the next 15+ years.
