Peter Franus wines

I know this is very much an American based forum but over here in England I've just attended a wine dinner where the wines of Peter Franus from Carneros were showcased, including a sauvignon blanc, an albarino and two zins. The man himself was there with his wife and it was really interesting to chat to him. Lovely wines made in the European tradition, with great acidity and balance, restrained rather than just pure fruit and with good tannins. I've never come across a Californian albarino, pretty rare I would guess.
