2010 Peter Michael L'Esprit De Pavots Knights Valley image

(91 points)  Dark red raspberries, rose petals, savory herbs and tobacco all meld together in the 2010 L’Esprit des Pavots. Hints of mocha, espresso and cloves develop later, adding considerable intrigue and complexity. Silky, open and expressive, the 2010 is a gorgeous wine that should drink well upon release and for at least a handful of years beyond. The mid-weight style of the year in this part of Knights Valley seems inherently better suited to wines that are meant to be drunk early rather than cellared. In 2010, L’ Esprit des Pavots is 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.
