Stephan Asseo is a farmer, winemaker, family man and mentor. He is the inspiration behind this wine, which is dedicated to the people who helped create it, our neighbors. Stephan is My Favorite Neighbor.
Angelica understands our wines and soils like she understands her own children. Her son, Angel, plans to study Viticulture and Enology in college next year. Angelica is My Favorite Neighbor.
Aurelio has been farming grapes for 16 years. He specializes in vineyard canopy management and thinks that wine was created by the gods... and him. Aurelio is My Favorite Neighbor.
What started as an homage to Stephan Asseo of L’Aventure Winery and his Bordeaux roots quickly became an obsession. Stretching wide across the Westside Hills of Paso Robles is clay soil amazingly similar to those found in Napa and Bordeaux. Today, these special sites are farmed meticulously by the farmers who have become My Favorite Neighbors. With their dedication to the land, we are able to craft a world class wine without any shortcuts or compromises. Welcome to the Neighborhood.
My Favorite Neighbor opens softly with luscious, dark fruit notes, seamlessly crosses the mid-palate and leaves you with a lengthy finish of blackberry compote and espresso.
97 points Jeb Dunnuck - “The 2016 My Favorite Neighbor is made with the intent of competing with cult Napa Cabernet Sauvignon yet at a more maintainable $80 price point. Coming all from westside Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon, mostly on clay soils, and brought up all in French oak, I'm thrilled to say that it succeeds beautifully. This deep purple-colored beauty offers an incredible perfume of crème de cassis, blackberries, graphite, lead pencil, and ample crushed rock-like minerality. Showing more nuance and floral characteristics with time in the glass as well as full body, sweet tannins, and no hard edges, it's a sensationally rich and seamless Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles to drink over the coming decade.”
96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - “The 2016 My Favorite Neighbor Proprietary Blend is 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah and 11% Petit Verdot. Very deep purple-black colored, it reveals intense cassis, ripe plums and wild blueberries with touches of licorice, tilled soil and black pepper with a waft of floral notions. Full, rich, chocolaty and oh-so-seductive, it fills the mouth with generous crushed black berries flavors framed by rounded tannins and finishing long and spicy. (LPB)”
