2007 L'Aventure Estate Cuvée

49% Syrah, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot. Opaque ebony center, purple margins. Powerful, complex aromas of graphite, “viande”, dark fruit, licorice, tea-leaf...have we forgotten anything? Spicy notes introduced in the aroma linger like cloves and sage in a rich tapestry of flavors that include wild blackberry, tar, gooseberry, and acacia. The length of the finish is memorable. You really need to try this wine for yourself– words do not do it justice!
