2016 Peter Michael "L'Apres-Midi" Knights Valley Sauvignon Blanc

SKU #1340867 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Bottled and released last year, the 2016 L'Apres-Midi is 86% Sauvignon Blanc and the rest Semillon vinified and aged in almost all neutral barrels. Juicy citrus, white flowers, lemon, honey, and some underbrush, earthy notes all flow to a fresh, lively, yet textured Sauvignon that has beautiful balance and purity. Classic, elegant, and lengthy, it’s going to keep like a great white from the Graves region of Bordeaux. Inner quote mark (6/2018)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Blended of 86% Sauvignon Blanc and 14% Sémillon, the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc l'Apres Midi is scented of crushed stones, white pepper, struck flint and dried herbs over a core of lemons and grapefruit juice with a touch of chalk dust. Medium-bodied, it fills the palate with zesty citrus flavors complemented by minerally notes, finishing long. (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc L'Après-Midi is bright, focused and nuanced, with plenty of lime, quince, sage, mint and almond character. Vivid and yet also light on its feet, the 2016 is a very pretty wine that will only benefit from another year or two in bottle. This, too, is very nicely done. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2018)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rich and succulent, with a spicy mix of cumin, cedar and quince up front, giving way to spice-infused peach, apricot and citrus flavors. Comes back to the spicy accents on the finish, making for an intense, lingering finish. (MW) Inner quote mark (8/2018)
