Wine Description

(2014 Vintage) Les Pavots is Peter Michael’s flagship blend of red Bordeaux varietals from our Knights Valley Estate. While the blend varies from vintage to vintage, typically it is two thirds Cabernet Sauvignon with roughly equal parts Cabernet Franc and Merlot and a touch of Petit Verdot. Les Pavots captures an elegant refined expression of the terroir embracing the full spectrum of Cabernet family varietal expression with its trademark touch of herbes de province. The name translates to "The Poppies” and is named after the California poppies that grow wild on our estates and are the inspiration for the winery’s logo.

Expert Reviews

    "Deliciously rich, smooth and polished. Deeply concentrated, with layers of currant, blackberry, mocha and vanilla. Beautifully focused and deftly balanced, the flavors run on and on. Best from 2004 through 2013. 2,164 cases made."
