Winemaker Notes

Apex pours a dark purple-black into the glass. Licorice, plumbs, wet stones, and blackberries lead the way, with smoked meat and wild blueberries framed by medium-firm tannins. Very full-bodied and super smooth. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon (40% Blue Dog Vineyards, Dry Creek Valley, 10% Bavarian Lion Vineyards, Knights Valley) 23% Syrah, Rockpile, Jack Florence Sr. Vineyard) 20% Cabernet Franc, Bavarian Lion Vineyards, Knights Valley) 5% Petite Sirah, Rockpile, Branham Vineyards) 2% Petit Verdot, Bavarian Lion Vineyards, Knights Valley

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Adobe Road Racing Series Redline shows power and trust in its palate-presence. TASTING NOTES: This wine delivers plenty of energy in its aromas and flavors of black fruit and tar. Pair it with grilled short ribs. (Tasted: January 24, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2018 Apex is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Syrah, 20% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petite Sirah and 2% Petit Verdot. The nose offers sweet spice-laced red and black cherries with accents of loam, dried flowers and bay leaves. The palate is full-bodied and super dense with loads of ripe fruits and new-oak character

Adobe Road is a boutique winery producing artisan wines from premium vineyards in both Sonoma and Napa. They maintain collaborative relationships with their growers and carefully select vineyard sites based on their suitability for particular varietals. Their wines are handcrafted in small lots with minimal intervention, including fermentation with native yeasts. At Adobe Road, they believe that these methods, combined with the distinctive nature of our vineyards, lead to expressive wines of the absolute highest quality.

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
