Description

L’Aventure Optimus 2019, Paso Robles Willow Creek District

96 points James Suckling: Extremely aromatic with ripe cherry and berry aromas, as well as flowers and citrus. Medium to full body with fine, polished tannins and a long, caressing finish. This is really well done and one of the most balanced L’Aventures I have encountered.  Drinkable now, but better in two or three years. – August, 2021, James Suckling

This wine is Optimus, a perfect example of Bordeaux meets the Rhone. The grapes are sourced entirely from the estate L’Aventure Vineyard at very low yield of just 2.5 tons per acre. The wine aged for 14 months in 60% new French oak and 40% 1-year-old French oak and was bottled without fining or filtering.

If you want a wine that is going to be a show stopper, this is it!  It is a great bottle to share for special occasions or to invest and save for a few years from now.  This wine represents some of the best blendings from Paso Robles.

Winemaker

“I truly believe that the 2019 vintage is probably one of the best vintages I have done since starting in Paso Robles. What makes it so special in my opinion, is the purity of the fruit in each wine. I would say that this vintage is classic, with great structure and balance.” – Stephan Asseo
