2015 Peter Michael "Les Pavots" Knights Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1353639 98 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark It offers a huge nose of blackcurrants, blackberry, scorched earth, graphite, and cedarwood. Deep, rich, supple, and sexy, with a seamless, incredibly elegant texture, it builds with time in the glass and is a monumental Cabernet Sauvignon blend from Sonoma. 98+ Inner quote mark (6/2018)

97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Intense aromas of plums, black truffles, bark and dark plums. Pine needles, too. Full-bodied, tight and polished. Extremely elegant and precise. The finish is very long and vertical. Compressed and refined. A beauty already. Inner quote mark (11/2018)

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A great match for seared duck breast served with berry compote, crushed violets and steeped hibiscus leaves interact with a dose of red roses, dark chocolate and espresso. Bold tannins accompany the juicy and defined finish. (ED) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

95 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Blended of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Les Pavots Proprietary Red Wine is scented of crème de cassis, blueberries and baking spices with hints of chocolate box, black earth and cigar box. Medium to full-bodied, the palate simply sings with black fruit preserves and spicy layers, supported by chewy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long. (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Les Pavots is wonderfully refined and nuanced, especially within the context of the vintage. Classy and polished to the core, the 2015 is all grace. Hints of mocha, grilled herbs, menthol, licorice and new leather all meld together effortlessly. The extreme conditions of the growing season have baked out some of the intensely savory and mineral character that is typically such a big part of the wine’s personality. In exchange, though, the 2015 is polished and very nicely textured, both of which make it easy to enjoy young. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2018)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Remarkably complex and nuanced, with a firm mix of cedary oak and mocha notes and tight dark berry, anise, gravel and spice flavors, finishing long and persistent. (JL) Inner quote mark (6/2018)
