2016 L'Aventure "Les Demoiselles" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1385053 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Youthful purple. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe dark berries, candied flowers, incense and exotic spices, along with a smoky mineral overtone. Pliant, seamless and intensely spicy on the palate, offering deeply concentrated, mineral-laced blackberry, bitter cherry, vanilla and floral pastille flavors that firm up slowly as the wine opens up. Concentrated yet energetic, even lithe, delivering strong finishing thrust and dusty, well-knit tannins that come in late. (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Les Demoiselles is a 60/40 split of Mourvèdre and Syrah that was brought up mostly in used barrels and amphora tanks. It’s full-bodied, layered, and pure, with fabulous notes of cassis and blueberry fruits intermixed with ample smoked meats, sappy herbs, and olive tapenade. One of the more backward wines in the lineup, give it a good 3-4 years of bottle age and it should cruise for a decade or more. 95+ points. Inner quote mark (11/2018)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 60% Mourvèdre and 40% Syrah, the 2016 Demoiselles Proprietary Red offers up a dramatic nose of black cherries, cassis, warm spices and creamy new oak. On the palate, it's full-bodied, rich and layered, with a chewy chassis of tannins and extract concealed in an ample core of dark fruit preserve. The finish is long and youthfully taut.
