Adeptos Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Blend: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc
After decades in retail and distribution of fine wines the owners created Adeptos Wines. So "adept" at sourcing top wines and wine values from the Napa Valley, they decided to invest their time and energy working within the personal relationships they had acquired through decades with the growers and winemakers at distinct properties from Napa to Calistoga and in between. The Source of Adeptos wines are the amazing terroirs and microclimates of Napa's 16 distinctive AVA's which continue to provide us with exceptional fruit for our Winemaker partners to execute their "adept" skills in creating our highly acclaimed wines.
One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wine. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.
Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
