Readers looking for a clone of the 2003 Chave Hermitage or Chapoutier’s 2003 Hermitage Pavillon should check out l’Aventure’s 2004 Syrah Estate. Aromas of graphite, blackberries, creme de cassis liqueur, smoke, licorice, and pepper are accompanied by a wine with superb purity and massive body as well as great elegance. Drink it over the next 12-15 years. This is a brilliant wine from a Frenchman who has captured the magic of Paso Robles. (RP)
Saturated ruby to the rim. Brooding, inky aromas of cassis, blackberry, flint and smoked meat. Sweet, creamy, dense and thick; a wall of intense boysenberry and blackberry fruit covered with dark chocolate. This seamless wine reminded me of a top Australian Shiraz. Not the last word in complexity but has plenty of verve for all its sweetness and density.
Very ripe and plush, with lots of vivid blackberry, wild berry and blueberry flavors that are dense and concentrated, bordering on thick. The tannins are ripe and integrated, and this shows a touch of heat on the finish. Still, there's a lot to like in this blockbuster.
