Peter Michael Red Bordeaux Blend Knights Valley les Pavots 1991

Winemaker's Notes:

L’Esprit des Pavots displays all of the usual features, which characterize the Les Pavots terroir: blueberry, vanilla beans, licorice, chocolate, cedar and coffee. Spectacularly rich and intense, the fruit of the younger vines brings additional aromas of red cherries, plums and red pepper to the complex bouquet. The palate is full-bodied, rich and concentrated, exhibiting abundant, youthful yet supple tannins and a lingering finish. Fruit forward and enjoyable at release time, this great wine should age well for a decade. Blend: 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Cabernet Franc, 17% Merlot & 5% Petit Verdot Aged 18 months in French oak barrels from selected artisan coopers Alcohol: 15.1%
