Spectacularly rich and intense, the 2015 L’Esprit des Pavots displays all the features which characterize the Les Pavots terroir: blueberry, vanilla bean, licorice, chocolate, cedar and coffee. The fruit of younger vines brings additional aromas of black cherries, strawberry, red cherry, plum, leather, tobacco, clove, cardamom and white pepper to the complex bouquet. The palate is full-bodied, rich, concentrated, and polished, exhibiting abundant, firm tannins and a lingering finish
The mild spring and cooler summer in Monterey County give a chance of our Pinot Noir grapes to achieve the optimum maturity with great balance of acidity and flavor, and with deep color that is characteristic of Arroyo Seco Pinot Noir. The red fruit brightens across the palate, picking up raspberry and spice are balance by the French toasted oak aromas. Soft and silky through the middle, this wine crescendo on the finish leaves a vibrant, juicy memory in the mouth, with proper acidity and a pleasant mouth-feel
Exclusive to Butlers. Rich aromas of tropical fruit, spice, vanilla and cream. Silky, dry and vibrant. A crunchy texture, tropical fruit, a mineral texture with a long finish. The balance is perfect!
