Occasional Wine Note: This is a meaty wine on many levels. A Syrah / Cabernet blend that features aromas of cured meats, herbs, and cherries is met with all of these flavors filling your palate all the way through its long finish. Another brilliant creation from the winemakers at L'Aventure.

    Critic Score: 95

    A blend of 58% Syrah, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Petit Verdot, the 2020 Optimus has a deep ruby color and a deep core of red and black cherries, chargrill, thyme, charcuterie and desiccated violet. The full-bodied palate is light on its feet with juicy acidity and approachable grainy tannins, and it has a long, layered finish. Best After 2023.

    Grilled meat, bacon fat, tobacco and olives to the nose that follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate with rich, creamy tannins.
