Winemaker Notes - The 2013 Odette Estate is a stunning showcase of an absolutely mind blowing vintage. Opaque purple in color, black cherries, blueberry, black currant, graphite, mocha and lavender, all wrapped up and supported by silky, supple tannins in a seamless, energetic expression across the palate. Impeccable balance and ripeness with astonishing depth and density, signify the hallmark characteristics of this spectacular vintage.
95 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate exhibits graphite, blackberry and cassis, chocolate and a touch of mineral in a full-bodied, layered and impressively pure style. It’s a big wine for Stags Leap (15.4% alcohol), but gorgeously pure, with everything well-knit into a sensational equilibrium."
93 Points James Suckling - "So much stone, dried mushroom, wet earth, forest flower and light prune aromas follow through to a rich palate. Full, firm and intense."
93 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "Odette's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is dark, plump and juicy. Black cherry, plum, spice, mint and licorice meld together in an expressive, layered Cabernet Sauvignon. The style is forward, open-knit and succulent, with considerable near and medium term appeal. A host of sweet red cherry, plum, hard candy and lavender meld into the finish. The Estate should drink well with minimal cellaring. "
