Peter Michael Winery l'Esprit des Pavots Cabernet Blend 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

[92 pts Stephen Tanzer] Strikingly pure complex aromas of redcurrant cherry spicecake tobacco and licorice. Pliant focused red fruit flavors are complemented by deeper notes of mocha and cola. Finishes with silky tannins and a slow-building mineral quality. With its clarity juiciness and lingering spiciness this is far more inviting than the brooding Pavots today.------------------ [Robert Parker ] The second wine of Peter Michael's Les Pavots L?ÇÖEsprit des Pavots exhibits lots of smoky cassis tobacco leaf and chocolate characteristics presented in a full-bodied fleshy rich format. International Wine Cellar 92 Points

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
