(42% syrah, 42% cabernet sauvignon and 16% petit verdot; 15.7% alcohol): Dark purple. Explosively perfumed bouquet of cherry-cola, dark berries, pipe tobacco and potpourri. Spicy, deep blackberry, cassis and violet pastille flavors are complicated by suave vanilla and allspice nuances. Gains weight with but maintains clarity on the impressively long, juicy, subtly tannic finish, leaving behind a sexy floral quality.

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."
