2006 L'Aventure "Optimus" Paso Robles Red Blend

SKU #1046264 92 points Jeb Dunnuck

 The 2006 L'Aventure Optimus is a blend of 50% Cabernet, 45% Syrah and 5% Petit Verdot offers up lots of graphite, meaty dark fruits, herbs and tobacco. Medium bodied in the mouth, the wine shows beautiful purity, texture and length.  (11/2009)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2006 Optimus Proprietary Red, a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Syrah, and 5% Petit Verdot, performed slightly better than it did last year. Reminiscent of a northern Rhone blended with a Bordeaux, it exhibits sweet cassis, graphite, and a chalky, powdery minerality, good structure, and full body. As the wine sits in the glass, hints of espresso roast and white chocolate emerge. (RP)  (8/2009)

91 points Vinous

 Inky purple. Cherry-vanilla and blueberry on the nose, with suave spice and floral qualities adding complexity. Juicy dark berry flavors give way to deeper plum and dark chocolate with air and deliver refreshing spicy lift on the back end. The sweet finish features excellent cut and persistence.
