2007 L'Aventure "Optimus" Paso Robles Red Blend

SKU #1051272 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The sexiest offering at present is the 2007 Optimus Proprietary red, a blend of 45% Syrah, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 15% Petit Verdot. More fruit-forward than the 2006, the 2007 gushes with blackberry and cassis fruit, smoky, burning embers, charcoal, and toasty new oak. Full-bodied and powerful with supple tannins, decent acids, and an overall impression of voluptuousness as well as extravagant fruit and opulence, it should drink beautifully for a decade.

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Inky ruby. Pungent aromas of blackcurrant, cherry-vanilla, tobacco and licorice, with a strong note of peppery herbs. Supple and fine-grained, offering sweet cherry and dark berry flavors and a dusting of fine-grained tannins. Becomes spicier with air and finishes with excellent clarity and clinging floral notes. This extremely young wine deserves patience. (JR)  (12/2009)
