Michael Winery, Peter Les Pavots Proprietary Red Wine Proprietary Blend 2004
Peter's pouty Pavot!

I'm a big fan of Peter Michael.  I approached the '04 Les Pavots with the natural bias a Peter Michael fan would give.  But the wine failed to live up to my expectations.  However, the wine improved substantially 18-20 hours after being decanted.  I suspect this is a wine that should be treated like an old world Bordeaux and left to sit in your cellar for the next decade or two.  Dark red color revealed aromas of boysenberry and tobacco.  Currant was predominant at first taste, followed by an overabundance of herbs, primarily sage and cedar.  The wine was overly tannic and struggled to finish with balance as the herbal quality overwhelmed.  Interesting wine needing to be decanted for hours prior to drinking.
