L’Aventure ‘le Grand Verdot’ 2008

PASO ROBLES | CALIFORNIA | $75

Intense, concentrated blackberry and blueberry fruit supported by firm tannin structure that renders unnoticed a very high 15.9% alcohol. Complex notes of bay, cola, loam and chalk come through over a satisfying suede-like texture. Woody tannins combine with a pop of natural fruit acidity on the finish. Suave and rugged, this bloke out-charms and out-muscles his rivals. Petite Verdot with Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. An excellent wine.(Reviewed 1/15/11)
