The Wine Advocate
The last time L'Aventure made a Cabernet Sauvignon was in 2013(!). The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate includes 5% Petit Verdot and is aging in 98% new oak. Very deep ruby-purple in color, it explodes on the nose with scents of lilac, lavender and violet, crème de cassis, soy sauce, cedar, leather, roast coffee, chocolate mint, blueberry coulis and game meats. The palate is full-bodied, intense and pixelated with mind-blowing freshness, finishing very long and layered. I can't wait to taste this from bottle!
Last made in 2013, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is a brilliant wine and, with regards to Bordeaux varieties, possibly the wine of the vintage. Incredibly pure crème de cassis, tobacco leaf, crushed rocks, and lead pencil notes all flow to a full-bodied, seamless, silky Cabernet Sauvignon that has loads of ripe tannins, a stacked mid-palate, and a great finish. This primordial, structured barrel sample will require 4-5 years of bottle age but will have 25 years or more of longevity.
