The inky/purple-tinged 2003 Estate Cuvee (66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Syrah, and 6% Petit Verdot) exhibits a restrained/reticent bouquet. With coaxing, lovely aromas of camphor, cassis, truffles, and vanilla emerge from this full-bodied, powerful, sweet blend. It boasts both profound depth and formidable structure. Forget it for 2–3 years and enjoy it over the following 10–15.

66% Cabernet sauvignon, 28% Syrah and 6% Petit Verdot. Bright, dark red. Liqueur-like yet lively aromas of blackberry, maraschino cherry, graphite, violet, licorice and dark chocolate. Very suave and silky, with lovely acids leavening the wine’s sweetness. Began a bit youthfully grapey, but the black fruit flavors were joined by spices, pepper and licorice as the wine opened in the glass. Very long, very ripe and impressive. Asseo describes this wine as his interpretation of Paso Robles.
