L'Aventure Rosé 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Jeb Dunnuck (Wine Advocate): Leading off the 2011s reds, the 2011 Optimus is a rocking value that gives more than a glimpse into the style and quality of this estate. A blend of 50% Syrah, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Petit Verdot and spending 14 months in 70% new French oak, it delivers fantastic black and blue fruits, tobacco, violets and cedar aromas and flavors to go with a full-bodied, supple and beautifully polished mouthfeel that stays fresh and lively. Gorgeous all around, it will drink nicely through 2021, if not longer. Drink now-2021. (Aug 2013)

Funky nose with a flinty, spent matchstick aroma. On the palate, it's crisp, fresh and clean. Nice flavors of strawberry, cranberry and pomegranate. Nice. 89 pts. 9/1/12 at winery
