The inky colored 2009 L'Aventure Optimus checks in as a blend of 50% Syrah, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 17% Petite Verdot that was aged for 15 months in 80% new French oak. Boasting full throttle notes of black fruits, charcoal, chocolate, and roast beef like qualities, as well as a decadent, full-bodied texture, ripe tannin and a chewy, broad finish, this youthful blend has an unevolved, dense feel, needs 2-3 years of bottle age to fully flesh out, and should have upwards of a decade of life.
A gorgeous and generous red. Very silky and rich with a lovely texture of ripe, polished tannins and plenty of dark fruits and milk chocolate. Full and refined. Drink now or hold.
Opaque purple. Deeply pitched black and blue fruits on the nose, with notes of cracked pepper and cured tobacco adding complexity. Densely packed and energetic, with a seamless texture to the sweet boysenberry and cassis flavors. Tannins arrive late and add grip to the very long, smoke-accented finish. (JR)
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. (AG)
