L'Aventure 2013 Estate Cuvee
The most densely colored of all wines in a vintage of great extraction; Estate Cuvee exhibits a powerful perfume of anise, lavender candies, and dark fruit, with smoky accents in the background. The attack isimpressive, with a velvety mouth feel from start to finish. Rich, robust blue and black fruit, with hints of cocoa,big, but with soft resolved tannins, give a "total" palate experience in the finish.
Blend: 43% Syrah, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Petit Verdot.
