Adaptation Adaptation by Odette Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Winemaker Notes :
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 mouth feel is complemented by dynamic acidity that forges freshness, energy and length to the palate.
