The seriousness of a Bordeaux varietal program is evidenced by the quality of Peter Michael's second wine, L'Esprit des Pavots. This is no ordinary second wine, and it is probably inappropriate to even think of it that way as each of the vintages to date has merited an outstanding score. Even better from bottle than it was from barrel, the 2001 L'Esprit des Pavots (an 843-case blend of 47% Cabernet Franc, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot) boasts a deep ruby purple color, a silky texture, and a sweet nose of licorice, white chocolate, laurel, and creme de cassis. It is a beautiful, opulent, medium to full-bodied red to enjoy now and over the next 10-12 years.

Tassted 2006. Incredible nose of euchaluyptis, berries, cassis, and ripe fruit. Powerful taste of ripe black berries, liquire and anniss. Really good young and good for the next 5 years. After that if may turn a little sour. Delicious now,,, quite good. very enjoyable.

About This Producer


Peter Michael's estate vineyards (founded in 1982) are what make his wines truly exceptional. Sugarloaf Ranch sits high above Knights Valley in eastern Sonoma County, and from its rocky volcanic soil come Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The Alexander Mountain Estate Vineyard, above Alexander Valley, provides additional Chardonnay. All Peter Michael wines are site-driven single vineyard bottlings, whether from the estate or the limited sourced appellations. The line-up of estate wines is supplemented by a Pinot Noir from Pisoni Vineyard called "Le Moulin Rouge."
