Estate History

Uniquely tied to the exciting world of professional sports car racing and garnering wins from racing around a track at 180 miles per hour at the highest levels of professional competition takes extreme focus, attention, and a drive for perfection. To professional race car driver and team owner, Kevin Buckler so does winemaking.

Following the legendary success of his professional race team The Racers Group (TRG), Kevin and his wife Debra opened Adobe Road Winery in the heart of Sonoma County in 2002. Their goal, to craft wines that exemplify the true essence of California’s most revered winegrowing regions.

Vineyard Notes

Adobe Road sacrifices nothing when it comes to producing their line-up of premium wines. Kevin himself spends countless hours working closely with his Winemaker, Garrett Martin, and team, to perfect the flavor and balance of each and every release. He takes the time to study the fruit, experiments with new blends and meticulously monitors the fermentation process ensuring the ideal conditions throughout production.

Adobe Road knows the importance of nurturing its relationships with California’s most renowned and passionate growers. It is this attention to the details that brings out the personality and character of the wines and has garnered so many awards with prominent wine publications and industry competitions throughout the years.

Winemaker Notes

"Blue Dog is one of our favorites because we only make it in special years where the blend of Cabernet tastes just right. This wine is about a unique combination of Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards that celebrates the variety across the distinct growing regions of Sonoma and Napa. The framework of dark cherries and plush texture comes from Sonoma, while Napa gives finesse, polish, and black fruits. A unique wine, from a very special year!" - Garrett Martin, Winemaker, Adobe Road Winery

Tasting Notes

Blue Dog comes bounding out of the glass with loads of fresh blackberries, black plums, and warm strawberry compote. Silky tannins frame the anise and ripe fig complexities on the decadently layered palate, with a black pepper spice on the long finish. From front to back this wine feels luxurious.

Vintage Notes

2018 vintage allowed for picking at the perfect moment across the Napa and Sonoma vineyards that comprise this Cabernet. Moderate weather lead to perfectly ripe grapes and as always, the quality work of our vineyard partners set the stage for incredible wines to be made!
