2006 L'Aventure "Côte à Côte Estate" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1039196 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark In the same mold, with a classic, almost Old World savory character (certainly with a Paso Robles slant), the 2006 Cuvee Cote a Cote is 40% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache and 30% Syrah. Showing the ample creme de cassis, chocolate, seared meat and licorice-driven profile that’s common in this cuvee, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness and depth, yet stays lively and fresh, with no sense of weight or alcohol. (JD) Inner quote mark (7/2014)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Almost Bordeaux like given its structure and richness, the 2006 L'Aventure Côte-à-Côte exhibits impressive aromatics of cassis, blackberry, graphite and flowers that are supported by subtle oak nuances. It’s full bodied in the mouth with low acidity, rich, decadent fruit and a very long finish. Inner quote mark (11/2009)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Saturated ruby. Aromas of fresh red berries, anise and dried flowers. Sweet raspberry and candied cherry flavors are deep and rich (this is close to 16.5%) but surprisingly lively, with dusty tannins adding grip. A bright kick of smoky Indian spices adds energy to the long, juicy finish. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2008)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Big, ripe and intense. Firm and muscular, with complex cedar, blackberry and wild berry fruit that's well-proportioned, ending with good length and a dash of heat. (JL) Inner quote mark (12/2008)

K&L Notes

The 2006 L'Aventure Estate Côte à Côte is reflective of winemaker Stephan Asseo's commitment to showcasing Rhône varietals in Paso Robles. A blend of 40% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache and 30% Syrah, all from the L'Aventure Estate, this is a shimmering, gem-toned wine has a vibrant nose evocative of red summer fruit and spice. On the palate, the wine reveals layers of ripe blueberry and black cherry fruit complemented by graphite and acacia flower. It is full-bodied with firm tannins and plenty of stuffing to age for a decade or more.
