Peter Michael Winery Les Pavots Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2011

$179.99

Extremely rare opportunity to score one of the highest-rated Cabernets in California - hurry.92 Points Robert Parker: "The 2011 Les Pavots (3,086 cases) is composed of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. Its chocolaty fudge-like notes intermixed with espresso roast, black and red currants, smoky barbecue and underbrush are followed by a deep, rich, full-bodied, outstanding red wine that should drink well for 10-15 years."92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:  "Opaque ruby. Smoky, deeply pitched aromas of cassis, blueberry and dark chocolate, with a hint of truffle adding a musky, earthy nuance. In a substantial style for the vintage, offering sweet dark fruit preserve flavors and a touch of candied licorice. Tangy acidity adds lift to the round, gently tannic, persistent finish, with the blue fruit note echoing." (6/ 2014)

Wowzah. After all the amazing wine we’ve had this evening, leave it to @David L to order this up as a “night cap”. Everything I love about California cabs. Big fruit, and big alcohol. All smiles.

Solid wine, not worth the hype, the high alcohol really showing thru, a little hot on the tongue, needs finesse.

Fourth of six bottles. It went fabulously with the Kobe skirt steak. Quite possibly my favorite cab.

Very good right from the first sip. Perfect blend with nothing that overwhelms the palate. Berries and vanilla. Great wine from a "bad year."
