Jeb Dunnuck über: L' Aventure For Her

-- Jeb Dunnuck: One of the finest 2016s I was able to taste, the 2016 For Her is the same blend as the otherworldly 2014 and is 58% Syrah, 32% Morrastrel and the rest Viognier that was all cofermented and aged 14 months in 55% new French oak. It offers a heavenly bouquet of violets, black and blue fruits, chalk, wood smoke and peppery herbs. Complex, layered and even nuanced at this young stage, it has full-bodied richness, the power and richness that’s common in the vintage and a terrific finish. 97-99/100


Parker über: L' Aventure For Her

-- Parker: A blend of 46% Syrah, 39% Graciano and 15% Viognier, the 2016 For Her bursts from the glass with an expressive bouquet of ripe cassis, orange blossom and pepper that’s strongly marked by exotica from its Viognier component. On the palate, it’s full-bodied, supple and velvety, with an expansive attack, fine-grained tannins and a ripe but succulent core of fruit. The finish is long, fine-grained and fragrant. Its textural elegance and integration made this one of my favorites in the L’Aventure range. 96/100


Galloni über: L' Aventure For Her

-- Galloni: --Galloni: nky ruby. Pungent, highly expressive aromas of ripe dark berries, potpourri, sandalwood and smoky minerals pick up a spicy nuance with aeration. Sweet and seamless in the mouth, displaying superb clarity to the sappy, mineral-tinged black raspberry, boysenberry, candied violet and spicecake flavors. Possesses a suave blend of power and finesse and finishes strikingly long and sweet, with slow-mounting tannins framing the lingering blue fruit and flowers. 96/100
