L’Aventure ‘Estate Cuvée’ 2010

PASO ROBLES | CALIFORNIA | $85

Mature dark berries and plum with woody spice, cocoa and forest floor notes and a slight suggestion of pomegranate and blueberry. Elegant and forward with uncanny balance, a lithe silky-velvety texture and soft tannins. Worldly, assured and contemporary — grand yet sublime, this is the confident prima ballerina without attitude. 42% Syrah, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Petit Verdot. An excellent wine.
