“Adaptation” is Odette’s workhorse Cabernet, made under the watchful eye of gifted winemaker Jeff Owens. The majority of the Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Ink Grade vineyard on Howell Mountain, which he says “provides the framework and structure to carry this wine.” Inky-dark, chocolaty, this blooms from the glass with crushed blackcurrants and blackberries, not to mention notes of incense and dried herbs. At less than $60, this embarrasses many $80+ wines—throw a few in your mixed case and see why!
