2012 Peter Michael "Point Rouge" Knights Valley Chardonnay

SKU #1216131 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Remarkably, both vintages of Peter Michael’s top Chardonnay selection, the Point Rouge, may merit perfect scores. A selection of the best barrels, it is meant to age for 30 or more years. It represents the crème de la crème essence of what this estate is about. Helen Turley first coined the term by putting red dot stickers on the best barrels in the cellar, hence the name Point Rouge. This cuvée is made from Old Wente selections and some of the estate’s oldest vines, particularly the 25-year-old vines in Belle Côte. Drink through 2030. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Chardonnay doesn't get much better than this. Zeros in on a smooth, rich core of tropical fruit, pineapple, guava, tangerine and nectarine flavors, giving this a brilliant range of fruit to draw upon. Sails along on a long, persistent finish, offering layer after layer of fruit complexity and ending with a kiss of toasty oak. (JL) Inner quote mark (7/2015)

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright yellow. Complex floral bouquet evokes honeysuckle, jasmine and poached pear, with an intense mineral overtone. At once deep and lively, offering sappy orchard fruit and lemon pith flavors and complicating notes of ginger and saffron. Really stains the palate but shows surprising vivacity for its brawn. Clings with impressive tenacity on the powerful finish, showing smoky mineral and gingery spice qualities. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)
