Peter Michael Les Pavots 2006
Almost black in color with a deep red edge, 2006 Les Pavots reveals a profound bouquet of black cherry, licorice, black currant, blueberrypie, and blackberry, combined with chocolate, vanilla, coffee, black tea, subtle spice notes of cloves and cinnamon and its distinctive touch of "garrigue." Very full-bodied, concentrated yet graceful, the wine confirms the same rich, ripe fruit impressions on the palate with spice and black truffle. The mouth feel is massive and round with silky tannins and hints of mocha leading to a very long finish. Will benefit from three years of cellaring and age gracefully for two decades or more.
