L'Aventure Estate Cuvee 2018 Paso Robles mit 100 Punkte von Jeb DunnuckJeb Dunnuck im September 2020:

The 2018 Estate Cuvee checks 45% Syrah. 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. 15% Petit Verdot brought up in 90% new French oak. Tasting like the straight Cab. yet with more sex appeal. it offers a huge nose of crème de cassis. white flowers. crushed stone. graphite. and crushed flowers. This carries to a full-bodied. gorgeously textured red with incredible balance. no hard edges. a thrilling mid-palate. and a great. great finish. It's going to benefit from 5-6 years of bottle age and keep for upwards of two decades or more. Hats off to winemaker Stephan Asseo on another incredible wine. as well as. I suspect the wine of the vintage.

94-96+ Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den Erin Brooks im Februar 2020:

A barrel sample blended of 45% Syrah. 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Petit Verdot aging in about 90% new oak. the 2018 Estate Cuvée has a very deep ruby-purple color and explodes to crème de cassis. black cherries. blueberry and boysenberry preserves with accents of violet. grilled lamb. dried thyme. coffee. soil and chocolate with exotic spices in the undercurrent. The full-bodied palate is incredibly pixelated and silky with very bold freshness and a long. layered finish. I can't wait to see taste this beauty from bottle.

Stephan Asseo. founder and winemaker at L’Aventure Winery. began making wine in 1982 when he established Domaine Courteillac in Bordeaux. He and his family later purchased Chateau Fleur Cardinal (Saint-Emilion Grand Cru) and Chateau Robin (Cotes de Castillion). Over the next 15 years. Stephan developed into an artisan winemaker of fastidious craftsmanship. and gained a reputation as a maverick vigneron. However. his true desire was to be more innovative than AOC law would allow. In 1996. this led him on a quest for a great terroir. where he could pursue his ideal as a winemaker.

After searching for over a year among the world’s great wine fields. Stephan found Paso Robles. He immediately “fell in love” with the unique terroir. The rolling topography of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range. the deep calcareous soils. and the maritime influence of the renowned Templeton Gap all combine to produce a world class wine country. with the potential to craft some of the world’s greatest blends. It is here. in Paso Robles. that Stephan began his adventure. “L’Aventure”. His winemaking vision has quickly resulted in wines which have earned high scores and critical acclaim.

L'Aventure Optimus Estate 2016
92 Parker Punkte für L'Aventure Optimus Estate 2016 Paso RoblesWilliam Kelley bewertet den Optimus 2016 im Mai 2018 wie folgt:

A blend of 50% Syrah. 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Petit Verdot that checks in at 15.4% alcoho,. the 2016 Optimus reveals a lavish bouquet of crunchy berries, anise and creamy new oak. On the palate, it's full-bodied. spicy and richly tannic, with generous, oak-influenced flavors and a crunchy core of fruit. The finish is long and youthfully chewy. Bottled barely one month before I tasted it, this is already quite expressive and should begin to drink well after just a few years. The Optimus is Asseo's longest-running cuvée, realizing an ambition to blend Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon he nurtured in his native Bordeaux.

93 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für denim September im 2018:

Brilliant violet. Ripe dark berries, licorice, woodsmoke and candied violet on the deeply perfumed, spice-accented nose. Concentrated but lively as well, offering intense blackberry, cassis, cola and spicecake flavors that show impressive delineation and back-end lift. A very long, sappy finish features slow-building tannins, a hint of mocha and lingering smokiness. Drink 2024 – 2033.

L'Aventure Optimus Estate 2016 Paso Robles 94 Punkte von Jeb DunnuckJeb Dunnuck im November 2018:

Moving to the wines from bottle and starting with the 2016 Optimus, which is always a great introduction into the wines of this estate, it’s a blend of 50% Syrah. 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Petit Verdot that spent 14 months in 60% new barrels. This full-bodied, rich yet also elegant and lively red gives up a big, sweet nose of crème de cassis, toasted spice, licorice, and graphite. With good acidity and impressive finesse and elegance as well as richness, it’s a no-brainer purchase to drink over the coming 7-8 years.
