    Even better, yet more forward and open, the 2012 Estate Cuvee checks in as a blend of 57% Syrah, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Petit Verdot. It's another awesome release form Stephan that possesses thrilling purity in its creme de cassis, licorice, toast, chocolate, and roasted meat-like aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and seamlessly constructed, with perfect integration of its fruit, tannin and alcohol, this beauty can be consumed anytime over the coming 15 years or so.

  • 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."
