Saturated ruby-red. Currants, nuts, tar and a hint of menthol on the rather reticent nose. Sweet, concentrated and dense for the year, with plenty of middle-palate texture and spicy fruit. Finishes long and spicy, with building tannins that leave the wine a bit dry around the edges.

The 1998 Les Pavots (80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, and 9% Cabernet Franc) was produced from minuscule yields of 1.3 tons of fruit per acre. It exhibits a dense ruby/purple color in addition to aromas of melted fudge, cocoa, tobacco, and black currant fruit. In the mouth, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with firm tannin, and a compressed, moderately long finish. 1998 was a difficult vintage, but Les Pavots has turned out well. Nevertheless, it is a successful effort in a challenging year.

Very typical Cali wine. 1996 is much better.
