A very nice Cabernet centric blend. Not much on the nose but it tastes beautifully with great flavors of dark fruit, oak and some spice. A very good Bordeaux blend in my opinion.

Always a fan of Les Pavots, but this is a magical vintage. It has a long bottle life ahead of it. Great structure and balance now and will get even better as it ages!

A fantastic Bordeaux Blend from Knights Valley. Deep garnet color. Lots of dark fruit, licorice, cedar and smoke on the nose. Blackberries, licorice, dark plums, and espresso tastes on the palate. Nicely integrated with super sleek tannins and balanced acidity. A long intense finish. An excellent wine.

2013 vintage. Needs time but great lean mouthfeel and baking chocolate tannic finish

Need a 2012 to do a side by side, but from my memory the 12 was more of an early drinker, 13 needs time
