1999 Peter Michael "Les Pavots" Knight's Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #998052 92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very complete, this is wonderfully complex, smooth and well-focused, with currant, fresh tobacco leaf and sweet pepper flavors, ending on a pleasantly earthy note. (JL, Web Only-2011) Inner quote mark

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full bright ruby. Vibrant, pure aromas of cassis, blackberry, mocha, tar, bitter chocolate and violet. Round, rich and sweetly oaky; a large-scaled, mouthfilling wine with lovely fresh fruit and nicely restrained sweetness. Still youthfully tight and in need of time to develop more complexity. Finishes with big tongue- and toothdusting tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2002)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The dense purple-colored 1999 Les Pavots exhibits sweet aromas of cassis, tapenade, cherries, licorice, and subtle wood. It is medium-bodied, with a cool climate textural profile, noticeable tannin, and a Bordeaux-like finish. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2002)

K&L Notes

93 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "Tasted blind at The Arches. The Les Pavots ’99 has a superb blackberry and blueberry scented bouquet that comes racing out of the blocks, a smudge of alcohol that does its best not to detract from freshness and definition. The palate is very pure and succulent with ripe blackberry, creme de cassis and kirsch. It is primal and youthful, a Cabernet of great dimension the “thrust”, but it is still very well balanced and destined to age for a couple of decades yet. This is a superb Napa Cabernet is just beginning to 'motor.' " (07/2012)
