A Valentine’s gift for Car Guys, Adobe Road Wines

The Racing Series by Adobe Road Wines is comprised of four ultra-premium, California red blends inspired by moments on the race track. Includes keepsake heavy metal shift knob. The perfect gift for the wine connoisseur and car nut / race fan.

2018 Apex

Apex pours a dark purple-black into the glass. Licorice, plumbs, wet stones and blackberries lead the way, with smoked meat and wild blueberries framed by medium-firm tannins

2018 Redline

The 2018 Redline jumps out of the glass with ripe blackberries, black cherry, licorice, and a hint of toasty oak. A broad mouthfeel meets ultra plush texture on the palate, delivering chocolate covered blueberries and blackberry pie with wafts of hardwood charcoal grill. Silky tannins frame the incredibly smooth finish.

2019 Shift 

SHIFT comes roaring out of the glass with dark red fruits.  Zinfandel brings the strawberry compote and Tempranillo balances with dark plums and structure.  Syrah adds a touch of everything that’s good about food off the grill, and Petite Sirah is all about length and depth. Complex baking spices, caramel notes, and big mouthfeel make this an incredible wine.

2019 The 24 

The right blend of teamwork, preparation, and the ability to adapt has led to our team success.  The same holds true for how we crafted The 24.  The blend features fresh, fruity Grenache, mixed with an almost equal portion of dark, spicy Mourvedre.  Syrah holds the backbone of smooth tannin and velvety mouthfeel.  A dash of Malbec and Petite Sirah make the whole thing burst with intensity!
