L’Aventure ‘Le Grand Verdot’ 2010

PASO ROBLES | CALIFORNIA | $75

Concentrated dark berries with plum, chalk and violets. Notes of forest floor, cedar and a hint of wild game tease interest. Focused and complex, integrating lush fruit with firm structure. Regal and in control, yet there’s suppleness at play. She is the Queen, you know, maneuvering her Range Rover through the outreaches of the country estate, her affectionate hounds along for the ride. 70% Petit Verdot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah. An excellent wine. (Reviewed 3/3/12)
