    ($60; 15.9% alcohol) Saturated ruby. Superripe, musky nose conveys black cherry, cassis and violet face powder. Lush, smooth and mouthfilling; fat with fruit but not at all overly sweet. This is impressive more than complex, but the wine's edge of acidity and suave tannins give it shape.

    Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon is usually less than exciting (although Justin has done a terrific job with Bordeaux varietals), but L'Aventure's 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate could pass for a California version of the 2003 or 2005 Mouton Rothschild. Its dense purple color is followed by a classic bouquet of cedar, creme de cassis, licorice, and spice box. Full-bodied, powerful, and structured, with superb intensity and richness, it has the potential to evolve for 20-25 years. This magnificent example of Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon should be at its finest between 2009-2022. I would love to see this wine put in a blind tasting with some first-growth Bordeaux from the 2003 or 2005 vintage. This is a brilliant wine from a Frenchman who has captured the magic of Paso Robles.

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."
