95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

  The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. The wine has terrific aromatics of graphite, spring flowers, and some blackberry and blueberry fruit. Full-bodied, elegant, but also substantial and long, this is super-impressive, rich wine can be approached now or cellared for 20 or more years. (RP)   (12/2016)

  Odette's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is dark, sensual and inviting. Black stone fruit, mocha, black cherry and spice are pushed forward. This is an especially ripe, fruity style for Stags Leap. It would be nice to see a little more character, but hopefully, that will come with time. The significant presence of Merlot gives the 2014 its succulent, creamy personality. Although not especially complex, the 2014 is delicious. Odette is an intriguing estate. In 2012, the PlumpJack Group purchased the property and cellar from the Steltzner family. Since then, Odette has worked diligently to redevelop most of the vineyard holdings, but that also means that it will likely be some years before the full potential of this site can be realized. One of the unique aspects of Odette is the presence of a fair amount of blenders. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot are all planted here. (AG)   (10/2016)

  Aromas of plums, berries, mushrooms and spices follow through to a full body, soft and round tannins and a savory finish. A juicy and soft-textured red. Screw cap. Drink in 2019.   (5/2017)

90 points Wine Spectator

  Supple and harmonious, with a silky texture and pure currant and berry fruit flavors, shaded by anise, cedar and light floral scents that linger on the elegant finish. (JL)   (10/2017)

The 2014 Odette Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap District aromatics fly out the glass and the flavors linger on the palate with notes of black cherries, ripe raspberries, black currant, violets, and crushed rocks all interwoven into this full-bodied and expressive Cabernet Sauvignon.
Pairs nicely with a filet mignon or your favorite steak.
