Product Overview

Deep ruby color with a red-purple rim, the 2017 Peter Michael Les Pavots Estate Cabernet Blend reveals abundant aromas of ripe black fruit and jammy black currant. The bouquet expresses nuances of vanilla bean, garrigue, and leather. Full-bodied and elegant on the palate, the wine offers generous, ripe, dried, red and black fruit flavors. The mouth feel is dense and round, with supple tannins and subtle mineral notes, loaded with blackberry, raspberry liqueur, and black pepper notes leading to a long finish. Approachable now, the wine provides a classic presentation of our estate's terroir and will continue to age gracefully for two decades.

95 Points - Wine Advocate
"Composed of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot, the 2017 Les Pavots comes from Knights Valley AVA. Deep garnet-purple in color, it leaps from the glass with vivacious notes of crushed black berries, Black Forest cake, blueberry compote and blackcurrant cordial with touches of camphor, lavender, tapenade and cigar box plus hints of mocha and pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with muscular black fruits, framed by firm grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and savory. 2,050 cases were made." -LPB, 2/13/20
