Peter Michael les Pavots 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Reveals a deep bouquet of strawberry, black cherry, black currant, blueberry and blackberry, with nuances of cedar, cacao, cigar box, black tea, graphite, a stylish ?garrigue? touch, forest floor, sweet vanilla and cloves. Extremely full-bodied, this wine offers the same rich, ripe fruit impressions on the palate. The mouth feel is dense and round, with elegant tannins, which lead to a long finish. Complex, the 2010 Les Pavots will benefit from another year of cellaring for near term enjoyment and will age gracefully for a decade or more.
