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%

From the beginning, the wine growing philosophy was modeled on the French tradition infused with a few modern influences: One, the vineyard terroir would be the single most important feature. Two, the wines would be elegant rather than overstated. Three, there would be a hundred-year commitment to the development of a great estate. Read less
