Buckler Family Vyds Dba Adobe Adobe Road Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Vly 05 2006

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Super luscious and inviting nose. Red currant and creme de cassis. Sweet tannin. Some hints of vanilla. It has a rich and decadent feel on the palate, with some spice notes. Sweet oak tones. Some light smoky qualities. A rich, berry driven cab. Very nice! - 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.

WS 91 Pts - According to Wine Spectator: Complex and inviting, with a generous mix of ripe plum, black cherry and berry fruit that's supple, balanced, deep and persistent, picking up a black licorice note. There's wonderful persistence on the finish, with firm, integrated tannins. Drink now through 2015. Rated 90+
