The 2018 Adaptation Cabernet Sauvignon is opaque purple in color, presenting notes of wild blackberries, luxardo cherries, plums, crème decassis with hints of fresh spring flowers. This full bodied expression displays beautiful ripeness with elegant, very fine, well integrated tannins and a gorgeous silky texture. Built for near term appreciation and long term potential, this forward, upfront and approachable style can be enjoyed over the next decade.
Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 2% Petite Sirah
This is sourced from a range of sites across the valley and blended with 18% Merlot and 2% Petite Sirah, designed to be enjoyed in its youth. Sweet oak supports a soft, integrated and full-bodied core of cassis, dark cherry, cedar and clove, with a moderate grip of oak and tannin.
