L Aventure For Her, California, 2016, 75cl

224.00 /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: 46% Syrah Hill Top Block, 39% Graciano ja 15% Viognier.

Jeb Dunnuck – 97 Points

The 2016 For Her got more than one “Wow” in my notes and boasts a rock star nose of pure blueberry and blackberry fruits, liquid violets, crushed herbs, and ground pepper. A blend of 46% Syrah, 39% Graciano (which they originally thought was Monastrell), and 15% Viognier, this full-bodied effort cuts a straight, focused path on the palate and has good acidity, awesome purity of fruit, and a great, great finish. Give bottles 2-3 years of bottle age and drink over the following decade or more.

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 96 Points

A blend of 46% Syrah, 39% Graciano, and 15% Viognier, the 2016 For Her bursts from the glass with an expressive bouquet of ripe cassis, orange blossom and pepper that’s strongly marked by exotica from its Viognier component. On the palate, it’s full-bodied, supple and velvety, with an expansive attack, fine-grained tannins and a ripe but succulent core of fruit. The finish is long, fine-grained and fragrant. Its textural elegance and integration made this one of my favorites in the L’Aventure range.
