The proprietors of Adobe Road Winery, Kevin Buckler and his wife Debra, are uniquely tied to the exhilarating world of professional sports car racing. Kevin was a driver himself and team owner, and following the legendary success of his team, The Racers Group (TRG), he decided to start his own winery in the heart of Sonoma County in 2002. Kevin and Debra work hard to make sure all of their wines express the true essence of each vineyard and appellation that they source from. Kevin works tirelessly with his winemaker, Garrett Martin, to perfect the flavor and balance of his wines. Their production facility is in Petaluma just steps away from TRG, so Kevin can keep a close eye on both businesses. This 2012 cabernet sauvignon is sourced entirely from a historic site in the heart of Rutherford and is the epitome of what Napa Valley has to offer. It is exquisitely juicy and dark fruited with the classic “Rutherford Dust” and layers of mocha, caramel, violet, and tobacco notes that mingle in delicate balance with elegantly fine tannins and bright acidity. It is aged in a large percentage of new French oak barrels, giving it wonderful toasty smoke and vanilla spice character. This wine is drinking beautifully now but can be aged for another few years if desired.
