Peter Michael, Estate Red, Knights Valley "Les Pavots", 2016


Sir Peter Michael was one of the early Californian pioneers inspired to make wine modeled on the great wines of France, so he founded a winery in a rocky, high-altitude, volcanic corner of  the Napa Valley known as Knights Valley. To this day his is the only winery to be found there. He surrounded himself with a series of top wine-makers (Turley, Aubert,  etc.) and a legend was born.

Les Pavots is French for poppies, a reference to the wild flowers that grow by the vines. It is a traditional left-bank Bordeaux blend, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon.

Here is Antonio Galloni of Vinous: "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Les Pavots is a dense, powerful wine endowed with tons of raciness and class."
