(42% grenache, 34% syrah and 24% mourvedre; 16.1% alcohol): Opaque ruby. Strikingly complex, smoke-accented bouquet evokes blackberry, cherry, cracked pepper and potpourri. Sappy, palate-staining dark berry compote flavors are given a tangy edge by an exotic orange pith quality and exhibit refreshingly peppery, spicy cut. The floral note repeats strongly on the finish, which is sweet, broad and very persistent.

Similar to the 2004 with its pure, focused style, the 2010 Cote a Cote boasts terrific notes of creme de cassis, blackberry, and crushed rock-like minerality that flow to a full-bodied, concentrated and focused palate. Showing stunning purity of fruit, a tight, backward profile and a great finish, this beauty will have two decades of longevity.

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."
