For the 2015 Adaptation Cabernet Sauvignon, winemaker Jeff Owens selected fruit from his favorite local growers to craft a wine that truly represents the broader Napa Valley appellations. The backbone of the blend was sourced from Ink Grade (on the backside of Howell Mountain), which provided the framework and structure, while smaller amounts of fruit were blended in from the Stag’s Leap District, Yountville and Oak Knoll. Blended together, this wine redefines approach ability with its fusion of fruit flavors that include wild blackberries, mulberries, sweet cherries and cocoa dipped blueberries. An exuberant, multi-dimensional mouthfeel is complemented by dynamic acidity that brings freshness, energy and length to the palate and finish.
