2008 Peter Michael Winery L'Esprit des Pavots Proprietary Blend 750 ml

Peter Michael Winery, if you agree with Robert Parker, produces three Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir labels – Clos du Ciel, Ma Danseuse, and La Caprice - that can go toe-to-toe with Burgundy’s DRC…and sometimes win, especially if you consider the lower price point of the Peter Michael. Regularly scoring at least 98 points, these fabulous wines made by winemaker Nicolas Morlet come from their higher elevation Sonoma Coast “Seaview” vineyard. Equally fabulous, scoring high and reflecting an impeccable elegance, are their Chardonnay and Bordeaux blends, which come from both estate vineyards in Knights Valley, Oakville and Sonoma Coast, and from sourced sites in Alexander Valley, Santa Lucia Highlands, and Russian River. Sir Peter Michael is a successful worldwide entrepreneur and engineer with a portfolio of businesses from high tech to hospitality to commercial radio. Knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 1989 in recognition for the prosperity spawned by his work, Sir Peter Michael clearly has a knack for growing successful ventures...and his California wine business is no different.

Wine Advocate 90 points

The estate’s second wine, the 2008 L’Esprit des Pavots Proprietary Red, is composed of 47% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Franc, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot. Also outstanding, it is a more forward effort that is meant to be drunk in its first 10-12 years of life. Notes of chocolaty black cherries, forest, spice and earth are present in this medium to full-bodied, lush 2008. It is ideal for drinking over the next decade. - Robert Parker (2/2011)
