Local sommelier Virginia Philip recommends this Peter Michael Winery L’Après-Midi Sauvignon Blanc 2012 ($64) for a hostess gift. “The mouth feel is rich, silky and dry with flavors of kiwi, white peach, tangerine rind with a note of mineral on the finish,” Philip says. “When you receive a bottle of Peter Michael wines as a gift, you will know it was a well-thought-out search.”
