"This has slightly leafy character with aromas of ripe berries, baking spices, chocolate and cedar wood. Soft and mellow with a full body and firm tannins. Holds even with delicious notes of cassis and chocolate. 30% cabernet franc, 28% merlot, 26% cabernet sauvignon and 16% petit verdot. Try now, but better after 2024."

Blended from sites in both Napa (Oakville) and Sonoma, the 2019 L'Esprit Des Pavots could be considered a killer "second wine," revealing a nose that is fresh with black plum, vanilla, and crushed purple flowers. The palate is rich, inviting, and deceptively easy-drinking, with juicy fruit and refreshing acidity that pulls through it to encourage you to go back for more. Drink now and over the next 15 years.

The 2019 L'Esprit des Pavots is absolutely gorgeous. Soft, supple and utterly engaging, the Esprits is a real charmer. Succulent dark cherry, plums, mocha, herbs licorice, new leather, scorched earth and cloves all meld together effortlessly. Silky tannins frame the supple finish nicely.

A blend of fruit from Knights Valley (74%) and Oakville (26%), the 2019 L'Esprit des Pavots is a blend of 30% Cabernet Franc, 28% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Petit Verdot. Even more open and supple than the Les Pavots or Au Paradis, it offers boatloads of ripe cherries and cassis in a full-bodied but plush, easy-drinking format. It has the requisite concentration to age at least a decade, but there's no real need to defer your pleasure with this wine.
