A powerful meritage... honestly too high in alcohol and out of balance for me.

Almost Amarone dominated by dried raisins and concentrated sweetness.

08’ Peter Michael Les Pavots. Very few wines that have elegance & power. Silky textures that caress the palate. No holes or slack in this. Drinking very close to a pop & pour . Don’t think you can go wrong with anything they have made in the last 15 years. Pure enjoyment! It’s a coin flip between the 2008 & 2009 at this particular point. I’m so surprised this wine isn’t year after year a top 💯 wine. Drinking now. Edit - 2009 - One of the best California blends from that vintage!

Still needs a 30 minute decanting . It will show off at that point. Very good... not great.

Consensus Number two, my number one. One of the few 1990s cabs we drank to still be drinking well.

Dense and rich but with a freshness to keep it interesting
