From The Winery
Tucked into the dramatic palisades of the Stags Leap District, our estate vineyard sits on 45 magnificent acres. As the newest addition to the beloved region, Odette looks to serve as a “breath of fresh air” to the historic District. Ultramodern architecture and design, paired with a contemporary stance on environmental responsibility, Odette is symbolic of the future of Stags Leap. Odette is committed to producing full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignons that are notable for the combination of power and finesse, while simultaneously showcasing the unique terroir of the estate.
The 2018 Odette Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap District is full bodied and opaque black in color, revealing bing cherries, raspberries, blueberries, pencil lead shavings, tobacco, dried herbs, and crushed granite. Its tightly knit core, very fine tannins and firm structure lead way to the long and persistent finish. Enjoy over the next 15+ years.
96 Points Jeb Dunnuck – “The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is brilliant all the way, offering a smorgasbord-like bouquet of blueberries, raspberries, spring flowers, cured meats, tobacco, and assorted other spicy, floral nuances. I always find a subtle red fruit and mineral character in top Stags Leap Cabernet, and this beauty has it in spades. Full-bodied on the palate, this pure, plush, sexy Napa Valley Cabernet has sweet tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish. Seemingly all about sweet fruit and texture, it’s nevertheless going to evolve for 20-25 years.”
94 Points Antonio Galloni – “The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a powerhouse. It needs time to come together, as the elements are a bit disjointed, but there is a ton of potential, that much is clear. Dark blue/purplish berry fruit, spice, lavender, chocolate and white flowers abound. I would prefer to cellar the 2018 for a few years to allow the tannins to soften.”
93 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – “Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate bursts from the glass, offering vibrant notes of blackberry pie, plum preserves and black and red currant jelly with nuances of bay leaves, tar and licorice plus a waft of cinnamon stick. The full-bodied palate is jam-packed with juicy black fruits, supported by approachable, grainy tannins and tons of freshness, finishing long with an herbal lift.”
