The 2017 Adaptation Cabernet Sauvignon delivers what wine lovers expect from the Napa Valley. This wine is rich and generous from start to finish. Its alluring and bold black fruit aromas and flavors balanced with a nice accent of oak should pair it well with a juicy Porterhouse steak. (Tasted: December 5, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

From the folks at Odette and Plumpjack, this lovely red is juicy, broad and immensely likable, with soft layers of baking spice, black cherry and licorice. With 16% Merlot and smaller additions of Malbec and Petite Sirah, it delivers supple texture and length without fuss.
Brings beautiful ripeness with elegant tannins, depth and complexity, delivering notes of red cherries, blueberries, currants, forest floor, mocha, cocoa powder and crushed rocks. Bright acidity adds freshness and verve to the multi-dimensional mouthfeel leading into the long persistent finish.
Blend: 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 2% Petite Sirah
