Adobe Road Cabernet Sauvignon Dry Creek Valley 2009

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

The nose is pure rich, red berry tart. Flavors of fresh pastry with red berry jam. Some toasty vanilla. It's rich and mouth-coating. Luscious and decadent and drinking wonderfully right now! - Tasted at Sonoma tasting room Feb 2011

Adobe Road Winery is owned by renowned sportscar racer and entrepreneur Kevin Buckler and his wife, Debra. Adobe Road Winery produces award winning Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Grenache, Meritage, Petite Sirah, Pinot Noir, Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Zinfandel and Dessert Wines exclusively from Sonoma and Napa County sources. The tasting room is located in Petaluma, California. In 1992 Kevin founded The Racer’s Group (TRG) and grew it into an internationally prominent manufacturer and distributor of performance Porsche parts, while simultaneously building a career as a successful endurance sportscar racer and team owner. Kevin’s accomplishments as a driver include class wins at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona (2002) and the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans (2002), an overall win at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona (2003), and the title of Porsche World Cup Champion in 2002. As a team owner, Kevin has directed the growth of The Racer’s Group into an internationally-acclaimed racing team. With friends, the Bucklers started making “garage wine” which, after prodding from enthusiastic friends, started commercially bottling under the Adobe Road label in 1999. Through Kevin’s good connections, he has acquired grapes from some very prestigious vineyards, which he handcrafts into extremely limited-production wines. The awards that followed inspired the all out effort to make Adobe Road Winey the premire small lot winery of Sonoma County. With the goal of producing exceptional wines by hand-crafting small lots of red and white varietals exclusively from Sonoma and Napa Counties, the Bucklers have dedicated themselves to seeing their vision through to reality, and the results are paying off.

his wine is a perfect example of why Cabernet Sauvignon is considered the King of grapes-it epitomizes just why people love it. Deep aromas and flavors of cassis and blackcurrant, rich vanilla, and creme caramel wave over your palate and linger in an incredibly long finish. Just try and put it down-its richly concentrated fruit and complexity will entice you over and over again.

Our 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon put Adobe Road on the map, winning three top awards! Since then, we have never looked back! concentrated blackberry, spice and vanilla aromas surrender to a rich, blackberry explosion in our 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon! A long, complex finish embraces fresh cedar and mint notes in this seductive drinker--perfect for drinking now or cellaring for years to come!

Hand harvested whole clusters that were cold soaked and fermented in small, open-top bins that were punched down twice daily through fermentation and gently basket pressed.
