L'Aventure 2016 Optimus, Paso Robles


Add to Wishlist

94 points Parker                                
L'Aventure is one of the hottest wineries on the up-and-coming Westside of Paso Robles wine region. A beautiful blend of Cabernet/Syrah blend, the Optimus is a big, delicious red. 

94 points Robert Parker:  "A barrel sample of already blended 50% Syrah, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Petit Verdot, the 2016 Optimus has an earthy, broody nose of black soil, underbrush and tar with suggestions of black currants, anise and cloves. Full-bodied, rich and earthy, it offers up densely packed flavors and a very firm backbone with great promise!"

The Optimus is a blend of 53% Syrah, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot that entices with a tangy cherry, chocolate and mineral-inflected bouquet. The palate is redolent of mixed berry pie, with peppery spice and a dose of saddle leather. But this isn't a total fruit bomb, there's plenty of acidity to keep it fresh, and subtle tannins.
