Odette Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Stags Leap District|
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate exhibits graphite, blackberry and cassis, chocolate and a touch of mineral in a full-bodied, layered and impressively pure style. It's a big wine for Stags Leap (15.4% alcohol), but gorgeously pure, with everything well-knit into a sensational equilibrium. This is only a baby, but promises to hit its peak in 7-10 years and last 25-30.
A toasty, charry oak presence dominates here, overlaying the subtle fruit and floral nuances as well as the core of dark berry and mocha. A big wine. Best from 2018 through 2030. 3,869 cases made.
