Product Overview

The 2018 L'Aventure Estate Cuvee, a delicious blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot sourced entirely from Stephan Asseo's west-side Paso Robles estate, is aged 15 months in 90% 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.

Appellation: Paso Robles Willow Creek District AVA
Aging: 15 months, 90% new French oak, 10% 1-year old French oak

97 Points - Vinous
"Deep, glass-staining violet. Powerful, mineral- and smoke-accented blueberry, cherry liqueur, incense and pipe tobacco aromas show outstanding definition and pick up suggestions of mocha and exotic spices with air. Offers deeply concentrated black/blue fruit, cherry-vanilla, espresso and bitter chocolate flavors; a spicy flourish emerges as the wine stretches out. Finishes smooth, energetic and extremely long, with youthful, slowly building tannins and lingering suggestions of candied flowers and smoky minerals." -JR, Dec/2020

95 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2018 Estate Cuvée is made up of 45% Syrah, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Petit Verdot aged in 90% new French oak. Deep ruby-purple, the nose takes some time to unfurl to touches of cast-iron pan, tar, turned earth, cassis and blueberry pie with floral top notes. The palate is full-bodied with lush, mineral-tinged fruits in a firm frame, lifted by surprising freshness and finishing long and perfumed. Give it another 3-5 years in bottle. 1,800 cases produced." -EB, 10/30/20
