<style>.woocommerce-product-gallery{ opacity: 1 !important; }</style> The 2016 For Her got more than one “Wow” in my notes and boasts a rock star nose of pure blueberry and blackberry fruits, liquid violets, crushed herbs, and ground pepper. A blend of 46% Syrah, 39% Graciano (which they originally thought was Monastrell), and 15% Viognier, this full-bodied effort cuts a straight, focused path on the palate and has good acidity, awesome purity of fruit, and a great, great finish. Give bottles 2-3 years of bottle age and drink over the following decade or more. Read more

William Kelley - Wine Advocate

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 fullbodied, 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.

Inky 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. Drink 2026 - 2036.

A barrel sample, the 2016 For Her simply sings of red roses, red cherries and black raspberries with touches of spice cake, charcuterie and tapenade. The full-bodied palate delivers tons of perfumed red berry flavors, supported by soft, velvety tannins and finishing on a spicy note.
