Peter Michael L'Esprit des Pavots 2005
Wine SpectatorAging beautifully, this is smooth, rich and layered, with tannins that offer substance and traction around the core of earth- and mineral-laced dark berry, cedar, tobacco and sage. Ends a bit grippy from tannins, but won't disappoint. Best soon. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.--2005 California Cabernet blind retrospective (September 2015).
Wine AdvocateThe second wine, which is called L'Esprit des Pavots, is a noteworthy wine. The 2005 (73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) shows chocolatey espresso notes, loads of berry fruit, medium body, and a soft, heady finish.
All sizes are 750mL unless otherwise noted.
