Aromas of blackberries, currant bushes, and hints of balsamic. Full-bodied, layered and flavorful with lots of crushed stones and wet cement. Plums, too. Tight and focused. Chewy texture. Drink in 2021.

From younger vines and what could be considered the entry-level Bordeaux blend of the estate, the 2015 L'Esprit des Pavots is still a gorgeous, gorgeous wine. Blackcurrants, black cherries, tobacco leaf, and cedar wood characteristics, full-bodied richness, seamless, elegant, silky tannin, no hard edges, and a blockbuster finish make for a wine that's better than most top wines.

A gorgeous second wine, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon L'Esprit des Pavots is succulent, racy and inviting. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, spice and new leather flesh out in this super-expressive, pliant red wine from Peter Michael. Floral overtones add lift through to the finish. I would prefer to drink the 2015 over the near and medium term, as it is already quite expressive and delicious. The blend is 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot. -- Antonio Galloni

Blended of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 21% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot, the 2015 L'Esprit des Pavots sports a deep garnet-purple color and gregarious nose that is opulent, plummy, spicy and open for business. The medium to full-bodied palate gives plenty of soft, juicy fruit with velvety, approachable tannins and a nice, long berry preserves-laced finish. 1,220 cases were made.- LPB
