Dark cherry fruits and chocolate that fishing of with some fine spices. They linger on the palate long after the sip has been swallowed. Best US cab I have had in a while.

Les Pavots is more drinkable now than Au Paradis even though the latter has more lasting potential.

I have always loved Peter Michael's wines and I love this one! This is their 2nd tier, a blend made from Bordeaux varietals from their Flagship wine. This is a sensational blend of 52% cab, 30% merlot, 14% cab franc, and 4% petit verdot. The Merlot helps balance this tremendous wine, which weighs in at a whopping 15.7% alcohol 😮 Found this bottle at a local sushi restaurant that was holding a 50% off any wine special. Got this baby for $89 a bottle! A Knights Valley wine at its best, drinking perfectly now!

Lovely wine--decanted for several hours before enjoying. Crushed rock, vanilla and cola.
