92 points Wine Enthusiast
Blended with 22% Merlot, this wine is made by Odette's winemaker, part of the PlumpJack group. It's a crowd-pleasing wine, concentrated and structured, yet floral, rich and round, with length and freshness on the finish. *Editors' Choice* (VB) (9/2018)
In 2015, we continued to work with our favorite local growers to craft this wine, one that truly represents the broader Napa Valley appellation. The backbone of the blend is sourced from Ink Grade (on the backside of Howell Mountain), which provides the framework and structure. We move our way down to the valley floor where we incorporate Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from the Stags Leap District, Yountville and Oak Knoll appellations. This immense diversity and range within the Napa Valley allowed us to produce a wine that is emblematic of the unique Napa Valley terroir in an approachable, up-front style. The 2015 Adaptation Cabernet Sauvignon redefines approachability - a fusion of fruit flavors that include wild blackberries, mulberries, sweet cherries, and cocoa dipped blueberries invade your senses followed by wispy notes of forest floor and bittersweet chocolate. An exuberant, multi-dimensional mouthfeel is complemented by dynamic acidity that forges freshness, energy, and length to the palate."
Enjoy this Cabernet Sauvignon with roast lamb, a good old burger, succulent ribeye, cooked medium to rare, cheese and portobello mushrooms.
