This incredible discovery from a casual visit to Odette (Plumpjack's newest winery) has really been turning heads. Gary Vaynerchuk recently shot a special video where he picked his top 40 wines under $40. One of them was this stunner from California. As we mentioned before, we just don't know how else to say it. One of the most amazing Chardonnay offers in the $19.99 price point we have ever offered. --- What started as just a casual visit to Odette (Plumpjack's newest winery) turned out to be so much more than what we expected. We walked in and met winemaker Jeff Owens who started his wine career as an intern at Cakebread, then moved on to Plumpjack and Cade where he worked his way up to assistant winemaker. We tasted the wines from Odette Estate and flipped out. It's no wonder Robert Parker remarked “…tastings of their first vintages revealed world-class quality. This is the new vineyard from the owners of PlumpJack, and given their impressive history of quality, insiders will want to keep an eye out for Odette.” What happened next ... was the WOW moment from this estate As we tasted and talked Odette and Plumpjack ... our eyes noticed something else on the wall. A wine called Adaptation. Adaptation is a wine that is sold in the Odette tasting room at a far more expensive price point. After one taste ... we were hooked. We quickly worked out a deal to bring in some of the 2011 Adaptation Chardonnay, which today, is available for $19.99 per bottle on sale! This is a gorgeous wine, an approachable fun interpretation of Napa Valley Chardonnay. The wine starts off with aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, and acacia flower. On the palate, you'll get flavors of green apple, guava, and quince, backed by refreshing acidity and a long, consistent, pleasing finish.
