L'Aventure Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2003

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate boasts a dense ruby/purple color in addition to aromas of smoke, black currants, cigar tobacco, and incense. This powerfully constructed, layered Cabernet builds incrementally on the palate displaying terrific ripeness, huge tannins, and plenty of mass and structure. Forget it for 2andndash;3 years, and drink it over the following 12andndash;15, although I suspect it may last for two decades.

Saturated, deep ruby. Roasted black fruits, licorice and bitter chocolate on the nose; porty in a positive way. Then impressively intense and juicy, with powerful flavors of blackberry, black raspberry, licorice, violet and bitter chocolate. Lovely acidity gives definition to this powerful but fine-grained wine. Boasts terrific intensity and finishing fruit. Finishes with broad, huge but fine tannins and noteworthy persistence. This distinctly bold cabernet carries about 16% alcohol.
