L Aventure Estate Cuvee, California, 2016, 75cl

176.00 /L

L’Aventure on alles noor veinimõis, asutatud 1998. aastal. Selle juhiks on aga Stephan Asseo, kellel on suurepärased kogemused veinide tootmisest Prantsusmaal. Stephan on teisitimõtleja ja tema jaoks panid Prantsusmaal veinide valmistamisega seotud reeglid liiga suured piirid paika. Peale pikka rännakut maailma eri paigus, leidis ta koos oma naisega, et “uus maailm” on neile parim valik, kuna seal ei olnud nii suuri piiranguid. Praegu laiuvad tema viinapuud Paso Robles 51 hektaril ja sellest 40 % Cabernet Sauvingnoni all.

Segu: 52% Syrah, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon ja 16% Petit Verdot.

Jeb Dunnuck – 99 Points

Last of the 2016s from barrel, the 2016 Estate Cuvée is a classic blend of 52% Syrah, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Petit Verdot that’s brought up mostly in new French oak. It’s glass staining purple color is followed by a full-bodied, unctuous, seriously concentrated red that has building structure, a huge mid-palate and terrific notes of crème de cassis, pencil lead, tobacco leaf and graphite. The Cabernet really shows and this bruiser (although it stays graceful and lively) is going to require short term cellaring.

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 99 Points

52% Syrah, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Petit Verdot, the 2016 Estate Cuvee is all black cherries, crème de cassis and chocolate box on the nose with a Chinese five spice and potpourri undercurrent. The full-bodied palate is rich, opulent and firmly structured, with great purity and depth, finishing with lingering spice and dried herbs notes.
