Odette Estate, Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap District, Napa Valley 2014
The 2013 Odette Estate is a stunning showcase of an absolutely mind blowing vintage. Opaque purple in color, black cherries, blueberry, black currant, graphite, mocha and lavender, all wrapped up and supported by silky, supple tannins in a seamless, energetic expression across the palate. Impeccable balance and ripeness with astonishing depth and density, signify the hallmark characteristics of this spectacular vintage.
The Wine Advocate - "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate exhibits graphite, blackberry and cassis, chocolate and a touch of mineral in a full-bodied, layered and impressively pure style. It’s a big wine for Stags Leap (15.4% alcohol), but gorgeously pure, with everything well-knit into a sensational equilibrium. This is only a baby, but promises to hit its peak in 7-10 years and last 25-30.
James Suckling - "So much stone, dried mushroom, wet earth, forest flower and light prune aromas follow through to a rich palate. Full, firm and intense."
