2015 Peter Michael "Au Paradis" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1380712 99 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The smaller production 2015 Au Paradis is a more Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated cuvée that checks in as 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Cabernet Franc. Aged in 18 months in 50% new oak, it has a more masculine, mineral-laced style offering red and black currants, crushed rocks, chocolate, and spice. Deep, rich, concentrated, and in need of 4-6 years of cellaring, this Château Latour-lookalike is an awesome, classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon! 99+ Inner quote mark (6/2018)

98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A bright and vivid red with aromas of terracotta, fresh herbs, currants and blackberries. Some mint, floral notes and a touch of chocolate, too. Full body and ultra-fine tannins that are layered with ripe fruit. Love the length and beauty. Changes all the time in the glass. A fascinating wine. Inner quote mark (5/2018)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Peter Michael’s 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Au Paradis captures the essence of this well-exposed site on Oakville’s Upper Plateau. Dark cherry, plum, sage, mint, kirsch, espresso and chocolate are explosive in this plush, deeply textured Cabernet Sauvignon. The 50% new oak adds a dollop of sweetness without overpowering the wine. This is a gorgeous 2015. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2018)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Striking for the density, complexity, focus and range of flavors and textures, with initial scents of smoky oak running to a seamless finish, offering dark berry, cedar, crushed rock and fresh earth flavors. *Collectible* (JL) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Composed of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Au Paradis has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of crushed blackcurrants, blackberries and mulberries with hints of menthol, violets, bay leaves and cloves, plus a waft of pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is energetic and yet tautly structured with firm, grainy tannins and a lively backbone framing the muscular fruit, finishing long and earthy. Give it 2-3 years in bottle and drink it over the next 25+. (LPB) 94+ Inner quote mark (10/2017)
