Product Overview

The 2017 L'Aventure Estate Cuvee, a delicious blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot from Stephan Asseo's west-side Paso Robles estate, is aged 15 months in 100% new French oak. Decadent, intense, and concentrated, this wine is made in an approachable style for early consumption, yet has the structure necessary for 10-15 years in the cellar.

Varietal Composition: 49% Syrah, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Petit Verdot
Appellation: Paso Robles Willow Creek District AVA
Aging: 15 months, 90% new French oak, 10% 1-year old French oak
Winemaker: Stephan Asseo

96 Points - Wine Advocate
"A blend of 49% Syrah, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Petit Verdot, the 2017 Estate Cuvée has a very deep purple-black color and explosive nose of black cherry and boysenberry preserves, crème de cassis, cedar, violet, burnt orange peel, baker’s chocolate, thyme, grilled meats, loamy earth and Indian spices. The silky, full-bodied palate is expansive, spicy and floral laced, with a firm but incredibly pixelated frame and great freshness on the long, dense finish. This merits another 3-5 years in bottle at least." -EB, 2/6/20

95 Points - Vinous
"Opaque ruby. Expansive smoke- and spice-accented aromas of ripe black and blue fruits, vanilla and incense are complemented by hints of licorice and potpourri. Bright and energetic on the palate, offering penetrating blackberry, bitter cherry, blueberry and violet pastille flavors that become sweeter and deeper with air. Polished, harmonious tannins give shape and grip to an extremely long finish driven by sexy floral and spice notes." -JR, Feb/2020
