Proprietor Stephan Asseo has fashioned a fabulous 2001 Zinfandel with gorgeous aromatics of creme de cassis intermixed with briery, blackberry fruit, licorice, and pepper. With tremendous texture, medium to full body, and moderate tannin, it may be even better at age 3-4 than when released. Very impressive!

A racy, zesty, vibrant claret style, with lively blueberry, wild berry, cedar and anise scents that are complex and concentrated, finishing with a nicely tapered finish that's engaging and complete.

About This Producer

Stephan Asseo's adventure began in 1982 with a winemaking education from L'Ecole Oenologique de Macon in Bugundy and the subsequent establishment of a small empire in Bordeaux, including Chateau Fleur Cardinal. With a true desire to be more innovative than the French AOC law would allow, Asseo gained a reputation as a maverick vigneron and set out a world wide quest for great terroir.

After searching for over a year, the St. Emilion native fell in love with the unique terroir of Paso Robles and built L'Aventure Winery to pursue his ideals as a winemaker. L'Aventure's flagship Estate Cuvee (a blend of Cabernet and Syrah) has incredible track record 94-98 point scores each vintage since 2002. Robert Parker has reported that Asseo "continues to go from strength to strength, producing a fabulous portfolio of wines that makes L'Aventure one of the bright, shining reference points for the region. This is one of the California Central Coast superstars, and the wines are worth every cent."
