L'Aventure - the name alone reflects the sense of discovery and French heritage behind this iconic Californian red. In 1987 visionary Bordeaux winemaker Stephan Asseo headed to the States in pursuit of vinous excellence. Not to Napa or Sonoma, but lesser known Paso Robles. A multitude of 90-plus scores from the world's top critics has seen this boutique estate put the region firmly on the fine wine map and Stephan fulfil his dreams. Here’s what critic Jancis Robinson says of this latest release: "Tarry black fruit and blackberry jelly on the palate. Remarkably like a Black Forest gateau!" Aged for 15 months in new French oak barrels has added a wealth of spiced clove and toasty vanilla notes to the chewy black fruits. Open early and decant.
"This is a pudding of a dry wine, with sweet spice and glossy black fruit to the finish"
