“I truly believe that the 2019 vintage is probably one or the best vintage 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

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. Syrah, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot. Drinkable now, but better in two or three years.
