Reviews For This Wine

Along the same lines, the 2006 Estate Cuvee gives up big, layered and ripe aromas of assorted dark fruits, toasted spice, roasted herbs and licorice in a full-bodied, exuberant and decadent package. A blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot, it's still youthful and lively, yet has a rounded, approachable feel that just begs to be drunk. While I'm sure it will still be superb in another decade, I'd lean toward drinking it over the coming 5-7 years or so.

A touch rustic, but in a pleasing way, with gravelly mineral, pebble, pepper and crushed wild berry flavors that are intense and firm, yet the fruity flavors push through on the finish. Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.

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."
