augmented notes of sweet black raspberries, black cherries & black currants

45 magnificent acres. Ultramodern architecture and design, paired with a contemporary
stance on environmental responsibility, Odette is symbolic of the future of Stags Leap.
Odette is committed to producing full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignons that are notable for
the combination of power and finesse, while simultaneously showcasing the unique terroir
of the estate.

Fermentation took place in fully jacketed stainless steel fermenters after a three day cold
