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!

Decanted and was absolutely beautiful. Young. Cedar cigar. Elegant tannins. No smoke taint. Wait 3 more years

08' Burgundy to bordeaux... how many wineries do it better? Decant for an hour+. Amazing display! Rich chocolate, tobacco, cedar, tar, dried flowers. I would put this up against their 02' or 07'.

Dark fruit, red fruit with great texture and power -- especially mid palate.
