  • Parker : 90
The deep ruby-pomegranate color of the 2009 Optimus from L'Aventure in Paso Robles, California only hints at the delicious balance of fruity and spicy flavors found in the Syrah and Cabernet blend. With strong aromas of fresh blueberry and blackberry, bold cassis, savory tea and mineralized graphite the L'Aventure Optimus has a bold appealing nose. Mirroring the complex nose, rich, dense flavors of cola nut, blackberry and currant please the palate. This first notes are supplemented with earthy tobacco and spicy tea leaf. Then there are notes of coffee and cocoa hiding within the long smooth finish of vanilla and spice.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2009 Optimus Estate flows from the glass with masses of dark fruit, tar, smoke and licorice. It boasts a highly attractive, juicy personality and tons of harmony, in a style that can be best described as a baby version of the Estate Cuvee bottling. In 2009 the blend is 50% Syrah, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Petit Verdot, with a total of 80% new oak. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.
