Odette Estate Adaptation Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$99

New release from the newest winery from the PlumJack folks.  These are some of the highest rated new released from a hot newcomer!96 Points Robert Parker:  "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc) is a near perfect, glorious example of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon from an absolutely magnificent vintage. The scary thing is that 2013 might be not only as good, but better. The color is dense ruby/purple and the wine shows classic crème de cassis notes along with some floral underpinnings, deep raspberry and a touch on minerality. Good crisp acidity provides focus and uplift through this wine's other exuberant and concentrated component parts. This is a stunner, and a classic Stag's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink over the next 15 or so years. Tucked into the dramatic palisades of the Stags Leap District, sits Odette Estate on 45 voluptuous acres. As the newest addition to the beloved region, Odette looks to serve as a "breath of fresh air" to the historic District. Contemporary architecture and design, paired with a contemporary stance on environmental responsibility, Odette is symbolic of the future of Stags Leap. With its two sister properties, PlumpJack and CADE (located in Oakville and Howell Mountai respectively), Odette rounds out the trio of wineries committed to producing full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignons that are notable for the combination of power and elegance, while simultaneously showcasing the unique properties of the AVA."

I'm really liking this Adaptation by Odette (Plumpjack's newish winery). A 2012 that is totally approachable right now. You don't often call a Napa Cab "elegant", but that's precisely what this wine is - no doubt thanks to 22% Beckstoffer Oak Knoll Merlot. It's admittedly not a long finish, but that's not what this wine is trying to do. This is a crowd pleaser

Ok it is Napa cab -a little age - a long decant and well this wine can hold its own I bought as a recommendation and was skeptical and I am pleasantly surprised - medium bodied but bold smooth and slightly aromatic but just the right palette and finish So I can sing the song from the great philosopher band the Eagles and say take it easy - on a Friday night - and we are smiling!!!

LOVE this #Napa #cab from Odette / Adaptation is #delish! Nice structure, good tannin, dark cherry fruit and hints of herbaceous character. Smooth and silky mouth-feel, well-balanced and a great finish. Not an aggressive, big Nap Cab.

Mad ripe black raspberries, blueberries, backing spices, brambly, round ,fleshy. This is a wine that might be hard to cellar but worth holding.
