2011 Peter Michael "L'Apres Midi" Knights Valley Sauvignon Blanc (1.5L)

SKU #1404279 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark One of my long-time favorites in this range, the 2011 Sauvignon Blanc L'Apres-Midi is gorgeous in this vintage. Citrus lychee, jasmine, melon, fig, smoke, and pear notes all flesh out in the glass. The 2011 is impeccably layered and balanced from start to finish. Hints of lemon oil and white flowers add brightness on the crisp, bracing finish. The blocked malo style works particularly well here. The 2011 is 95% Sauvignon (1/3rd Musque) and 5% Semillon. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2013)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Composed of 96% Sauvignon Blanc and 4% Semillon, there are 1,875 cases of the 2011 Sauvignon Blanc L’Apres Midi, which reveals copious notes of flowers, white currants, figs and melons in its medium-bodied, delicious, seductive personality. Drink it over the next several years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2013)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Green-tinged gold. Tangerine, poached pear, vanilla and anise aromas are sharpened and lifted by a hint of candied ginger. Supple, sweet and succulent on the palate, with ripe citrus, orchard fruit and melon flavors energized by smoky minerality. Very complex wine, finishing smooth and broad, with outstanding length and lingering smokiness. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2013)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Vividly floral, with vibrant acidity punctuating the fresh ginger, lime zest, lemon, tangerine and fleshy mango flavors. Features a smooth body, displaying plenty of nuance and elegance. (MW) Inner quote mark (8/2013)
