L'Aventure Estate Cuvée Paso Robles Syrah Blend 2014

$105.99

Limited new blockbuster release from one of Paso Robles hottest wineries.  Don't miss. 97 Points Robert Parker:  "Another big, meaty and decadent 2014 from Stephan, his 2014 Estate Cuvee sports an inky purple color to go with classic cassis and dark fruits, big minerality, graphite and hints of violets. Beautifully concentrated, textured and even elegant, with a lightness to its texture that keeps you coming back to the glass, it should be surprisingly approachable in its youth yet cruise for 10-15 years in the cellars.. I tasted the 2014s from barrel and they might just rival the 2012s."

Well dang. Very good. Very good thank you @Paul Treadway Huntington Beacher for sending my way. I figured a night of staging as a somm at a top dtla restaurant deserved this at the end. It was Riesling all night there so I figured I would go Paso Robles at home to go to sleep. This is luscious. Yet dry. Still keep checking the label to see if Merlot factors in as the smell of plums jumps out at me but no...it is Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot. As luscious as a wine can get and still be dry and still a smidgen (+) tannic. I could have held this another several years and I think it would have grown. Very good. Pleasant. Not complicated which is either good or bad pending your mood. I want to taste more L'Aventure. This was the first of their offerings I had.

Legit. Inky, opaque and grips the glass. It's just a baby, but the nose is extremely expressive. On the nose: cedar, raspberry, graphite, smoke, grilled meat, kirsch, molasses, sweet pickled hibiscus. On the palate starts a bit sweet and dark cherry driven. A bit hot, but less than expected. It's grippy and mouthfeel goes from velvety tannins to a bit aggressive. Finish is long, leaves an impression of quality well over the pricepoint. Highly recommended. Classic.

Very nice and well balanced. It has a nice herbal aspect that plays off beautifully against the fruit. Very nice.

Big and complex. This has so many flavors. Very enjoyable. We also tasted a 2010- which certainly illustrates the value of age on this. It was fantastic.
