User Reviews for Peter Michael Red Bordeaux Blend Knights Valley l'Esprit des Pavots

Winemaker's Notes:

L’Esprit des Pavots literally means “The Spirit of the Poppies.” This wine was grown in the original Les Pavots vineyard blocks that we completely replanted between 1996 and 1999 due to phylloxera. In replanting, we spared no expense, utilizing only the rarest and best clones of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The 2007 vintage wine made from these young vine blocks captures the “spirit” of the Les Pavots terroir.

Tasting Notes:

The 2007 L’Esprit des Pavots is spectacularly rich and intense displaying all the characteristics of the Les Pavots terroir: blueberry, vanilla bean, licorice, chocolate, cedar and coffee. The younger vines produce fruit that brings additional aromas of black cherry, strawberry, plum and red pepper to the complex bouquet. The palate is rich, concentrated and full-bodied exhibiting abundant, youthful, yet supple tannins and a lingering finish. Fruit forward and enjoyable at release, this wine should age well for a decade.
