Similar to the 2005 in its density and weight, the 2007 Estate Cuvee checks in as a blend of 49% Syrah, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot. It offers gorgeous creme de cassis, melted licorice, charred toast, roasted herbs and assorted background meatiness to go with a full-bodied, deeply concentrated feel on the palate. Showing the beautiful sweetness of fruit and purity that are the hallmarks of this estate, it's still youthful and fresh, and can be consumed anytime over the coming decade or more.

Firm and taut, with grapey berry, currant, mineral and herbal notes. Full-bodied and complex, offering plenty of fruit purity, floral scents and a taut framework. A blend anchored by Syrah and Cabernet that works. 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."
