The 2018 Adaptation Cabernet Sauvignon is opaque purple in color, presenting notes of wild blackberries, luxardo cherries, plums, crème de cassis with hints 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.

92pts Wine Enthusiast
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.

Intense, with boysenberry, blackberry and plum compote flavors gliding through. Framed by ganache and roasted vanilla notes and backed by a licorice-coated finish. For fans of the style. Drink now.
