Peter Michael Cabernet Sauvignon 'les Pavots' 2005

Robert Parker: The 2005 les pavots (3, 600 cases of 63% cabernet sauvignon, 23% cabernet franc, 12% merlot, and the rest petit verdot) is a sensational wine, with a style that suggests a hypothetical blend of a great st.-emilion and pomerol. Chocolatey cassis notes intermixed with incense, licorice, and a hint of black olive are present in this wine. When it hits the palate, it comes across as very pomerol-like, with lushness, full body, and opulence. The tannins are sweet, the ph high, and the wine gorgeously full, pure, dense, and long. It’s a terrific example of non-interventionalist winemaking that has turned out a beautiful, silky-textured wine that should age effortlessly for 15 plus years. Like so many 2005s, this wine has really put on weight since i tasted it last year. 95 pts
