Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90-92

Very good deep ruby. Dark, sappy aromas of blackberry, cassis, minerals, violet and cedar. Superripe, round and fat; makes the sweetest impression of these four Bordeaux blends today but also comes across as sappy and fresh. Finishes very long, with smooth, building tannins.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 90-92

In order to produce the finest wine possible under the Les Pavots label, Peter Michael has been culling out lots for a second wine. The knock-out 2004 L'Esprit des Pavots (45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Cabernet Franc, 17% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot) is more forward than its bigger sibling, displaying plenty of melted fudge, creme de cassis, charcoal, licorice, herbs, and smoky oak. Opulent, fleshy, and soft, it is both a hedonistic and intellectual turn-on. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.

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."
