Please enjoy!

The 2011 L’Esprit des Pavots (les-spree dey pah-voh) is produced from selected lots from our Au Paradis vineyard in Oakville, Napa Valley together with those from the slopes of Mount St Helena on our Knights Valley estate. L’Esprit des Pavots translates from French to “the spirit of the Poppies” as this wine is not quite Les Pavots, but still shows the spirit or essence of Les Pavots, the estate vineyard..

Winemaker Tasting Notes: 
Deep black with a ruby hue and crimson rim, the 2011 L’Esprit des Pavots has an intense nose of black currant, blueberry, vanilla bean, licorice, chocolate, cedar and coffee. The fruit of the younger vines brings additional aroma of red cherry, plum, black truffle and red pepper to the complex bouquet. The palate is full-bodied, rich and concentrated, exhibiting abundant, youthful and supple tannins alongside a lingering finish. Fruit forward and enjoyable at release, this wine will age well for a decade or beyond.
