Peter Michael Winery les Pavots Proprietary Blend Slightly Depressed Capsule 1992
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%

Healthy red garnet color, with complex aromas of cedar, currant, coffee, shoe leather and earth. Tight, rich and turning supple, this firm, concentrated wine is still quite tannic.--'92 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now through 2016. ... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 1992 Michael Winery, Peter Les Pavots Proprietary Red Wine 750ml
Peter Michael wines are characterized by mountain vineyards, classical winemaking, and limited production. The "Les Pavots" vineyard was planted in 1989 to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot at an elevation of 1500 feet. Red and black fruit, robust tannins, and a lush mouth feel make this wine irresistible.
