Odette Estate “Stag’s Leap” Cabernet Sauvignon 2016- Napa Valley, CA
Varietals: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot
The 2016 Odette Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap Dictrict is laced with notes of blueberry pie, black currants, black cherries, crushed gravel, spring flowers, fresh lavender, and potpourri. Rich, layered and opaque purple in color, this mouth filling beauty coats the palate as it leads into the weightless, exuberant finish.
Tucked under the dramatic palisades of the Stags Leap District, right along Silverado Trail sits the newest member to the PlumpJack and CADE family, Odette Estate.
The Stags Leap District’s distinctive soils are famous for imparting unique characteristics to wines—including extraordinary power delivered with delicately articulated structure, varietal aromas and flavors. This strong, feminine personality recalls the charisma of Odette, a woman who appears throughout history, literature and dance. The name “Odette” even shows up in the wine world, at the infamous Paris Wine Tasting of 1976, in which a red wine from Stags Leap District took top honors over the French.
Odette's Winemaker Jeff Owens seeks to harness the strong character of the terroir in order to craft wines that are both bold and elegant. The estate is set on 45 acres, planted mainly to Cabernet Sauvignon.
