The 2012 Adaptation Cabernet Sauvignon is composed of fruit from some of the most respected vineyards in the NapaValley. A true celebration of the greater AVA, the Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from the highly acclaimed Ink Grade Vineyard located on the northeastern reaches of the valley and the Steltzner Pool Vineyard located on the southern reaches of Silverado Trail in the legendary Stags Leap District. The Merlot on the was sourced from Andy Beckstoffer' s Orchard Avenue Vineyard located in the southwestern corner of the valley in the Oak Knoll District. This diversity and range of fruit has allowed us to craft a wine that is truly representative of the high caliber wine that the Napa Valley is known for.
The 2012 vintage blessed the vines with a stress-free, growing season allowing us to craft a wine with intense purity of fruit, density and concentration. Sunny, warm and moderate temperatures allowed for peak hang time and optimal ripeness in the vineyards. This wine reflects the characteristics of a great vintage paired with great vineyards.
