94 points "Peter Michael’s delicious 2008 L’Apres Midi, a blend of 86% Sauvignon Blanc and 14% Semillon. One of the finest examples of this cuvee they have made in many years, the 2008 has the texture of a top Chardonnay. One-hundred percent barrel fermented, it exhibits abundant amounts of honeyed lemon grass, fig, spice box, melon, and waxy fruit flavors. Zesty acidity provides vivaciousness to all of its component parts. It should drink well for 4-5 years." Best -2014

91 points "Wonderfully rich, complex and fragrant, featuring a mix of brioche, fresh apricot, honeysuckle and dried citrus peel. The texture is full, and the acidity weaving around the flavors keeps everything bright. Drink now through 2012. 1,260 cases made. –MW" Best -2012
