    Winemaker's Notes:

    A dark ruby hue glistens in the glass. Rich notes of fresh plum, blueberry, and cherry are repeated and buoyed in the mouth by leather and rich, soft, elegant, polished tannins. Cocoa, acacia and the essence of garrigue (the scents of the herbaceous and woody plants particular to the French countryside in Provence) labor long through the spicy finish.

    42% Grenache, 33% Syrah, 25% Mourvedre

    Critical Acclaim:

    A wonderful purity of dark fruits such as raspberries, blackberries and strawberries with a touch of minerals. Full and very racy with super refined tannins and a long finish. This is super classy. Wonderful texture. Better to try in 2013. 42% Grenache, 33% Syrah, 25% Mourvedre.

    James Suckling

    The 2009 Cote a Cote emerges from the glass with dark black cherries, plums, cassis, spices and white flowers. Sweet, silky tannins frame the exceptionally long, polished finish. This is another superb, totally elegant wine from L’Aventure. The blend is 42% Grenache, 33% Syrah and 25% Mourvedre, with a total of 50% new French oak. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    Vivid ruby. Explosive aromas of black raspberry, boysenberry, incense and star anise, with a hint of vanilla. Bright and energetic, with excellent clarity to its sweet berry and cherry-cola flavors. A suave floral nuance gains strength with air and carries through the very long, spicy, seamless finish.
