1996 Peter Michael Les Pavots Proprietary Blend Magnum - 96 pts!
One of the most exciting in California, this beautiful winery is owned by Englishman Sir Peter Michael. When he launched this winery, Michael had the foresight originally to hire the brilliant Helen Turley to oversee the winemaking. The current vineyard/winemaking team, Nicolas Morlet whom took over from his brother Luc, shares Ms. Turley's winemaking philosophy.

The present as well as upcoming releases are irrefutably brilliant wines. Peter Michael produces amazing single vineyard Cabernet, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc as well. Peter Michael Winery remains a family-owned estate that is now run by Peter's son Paul. Only a small number of cases reach the retail market as the majority are set aside for the mailing list and long-term restaurant clientele.

Rating RP96 - The 1996 Les Pavots (a blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 6% Cabernet Franc) tips the scales at 14.2% alcohol. The saturated black/purple color is accompanied by a knock-out nose of violets, blackberries, licorice, and pain grille. Full body and high extract levels are buttressed by sweet tannin as well as adequate acidity. About 2,800 cases were produced of this provocative, rich, distinctive proprietary red wine, which was aged in 50-60% new Taransaud barrels, and bottle unfined and unfiltered. This is a must purchase! RP
