Happy Birthday Neal! Drank next to the 2014 Cade. More expressive nose than the former and the lightness carries through to the palate. That being said, it lacks the concentration of the Cade and seems a touch shallow in comparison. They call this baby PlumpJack...whatever. Fun to try them back to back. Better value than the Cade.

2013 vintage. Entry level from Odette Estate. Intense dark berries and (seemingly new) oak. Layers of slightly jammy black fruit, good tannic bite and nice length. Very attractive, but I feel it lacks a bit of soul.

I'm really liking this Adaptation by Odette (Plumpjack's newish winery). A 2012 that is totally approachable right now. You don't often call a Napa Cab "elegant", but that's precisely what this wine is - no doubt thanks to 22% Beckstoffer Oak Knoll Merlot. It's admittedly not a long finish, but that's not what this wine is trying to do. This is a crowd pleaser

Bright red fruit aromas and delicious black currant, cherry and smooth oak on the palate. #cab

LOVE this #Napa #cab from Odette / Adaptation is #delish!
Nice structure, good tannin, dark cherry fruit and hints of herbaceous character. Smooth and silky mouth-feel, well-balanced and a great finish.
Not an aggressive, big Nap Cab.

Deep and rich. Lots of baking spice and dark fruit on the nose. Silky tannin. Balanced acidity.

Mad ripe black raspberries, blueberries, backing spices, brambly, round ,fleshy. This is a wine that might be hard to cellar but worth holding.
