Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Mostly Syrah (66%) with the rest Grenache (44%), co-fermented, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cuvee Chloe has an exuberant nose of black cherries, crushed blackberries and red currants with licorice, dark chocolate and dried Provence herbs nuances, plus a waft of violets. Full-bodied, beautifully concentrated and packed with vibrant black and red fruits, it has a rock-solid backbone of firm, grainy tannins and tons of freshness, finishing with loads of spice, herb and earth layers. Amazing energy. Give it two years in bottle and drink it over the next 25+. 300 cases were made.

One of my favorites in the lineup is the 2015 Cuvée Chloe, which is a co-fermented blend of 66% Syrah and 34% Grenache. The Syrah for this cuvée always comes from the Mcvey Block, which is a cooler, north facing parcel, and the Grenache from an old vine, south facing, warmer slope. Seeing plenty of whole cluster and aging in barrel, it’s reminiscent of a 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape (despite the high Syrah content) and sports a deep purple color as well as sensational notes of blackberries and currants fruits intermixed with melted licorice, graphite/lead pencil, violets and tons of chalky minerality. This is a big, concentrated, beautifully balanced 2015 that needs 2-3 years of bottle age. It will have two decades of overall longevity. 2020-2035.

L'Aventure, California
L'Aventure Winery Image
L'Aventure was founded in 1998 by a French winemaker, Stephan Asseo. After Stephan graduated enology school in Burgundy, the Asseo family bought their first estate, Domaine de Courteillac, in the Bordeaux area in 1982. Later, the family purchased additional properties: Chateau Robin and Chateau Fleur-Cardinale in Saint-Emilion. Stephan raised these properties to a level of great quality, while managing some other well-established domaines such as Chateau Guillot-Clauzel in Pomerol and Chateau Corbin in St Emilion.

Stephan saw in the New World a unique opportunity to expand his experience, while gaining more freedom in viticulture and vinification. He began by looking all over California for land, including Napa/Sonoma and Santa Barbara counties, but it was the terroir and climate of Paso Robles that impressed him the most.

Paso Robles Wine

Central Coast, California

View all products

Paso Robles has made a name for itself as a source of supple, powerful, fruit-driven wines. But with eleven smaller sub-AVAs, there is actually quite a bit of diversity to be found in this inland portion of California’s Central Coast.

Just east over the Santa Lucia Mountains from the chilly Pacific Ocean, lie the coolest in the region: Adelaida, Templeton Gap and (Paso Robles) Willow Creek Districts, as well as York Mountain AVA and Santa Margarita Ranch. These all experience more ocean fog, wind and precipitation compared to the rest of the Paso sub-appellations. The San Miguel, (Paso Robles) Estrella, (Paso Robles) Geneso, (Paso Robles) Highlands, El Pomar and Creston Districts, along with San Juan Creek, are the hotter, more western appellations of the greater Paso Robles AVA.

This is mostly red wine country, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel standing out as the star performers. Other popular varieties include Merlot, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Grenache and Rhône blends, both red and white. There is a fairly uniform tendency here towards wines that are unapologetically bold and opulently fruit-driven, albeit with a surprising amount of acidity thanks to the region’s chilly nighttime temperatures.
