Hitting the starting line today, Adobe Road Winery’s new Racing Series portfolio is a winning team of four ultra-premium California wines, all inspired by legendary race car driver Kevin Buckler’s moments on the track. Adobe Road is built on many of the same principles that made Kevin successful in racing: pushing limits, a drive for perfection, focus, attention to detail, and teamwork.

Timed to the kick-off of the 2019 racing season, the Racing Series wines represent patience and hard work, and Kevin’s personal passions in wine, married with the adrenaline rush of a podium finish.

REDLINE (SRP $35) is a rich blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah, and Malbec. The bottle is silkscreened with a vintage tachometer representing Kevin’s very first victory.

SHIFT (SRP $55) is a daring combination of Zinfandel, Barbera, Grenache, Petite Sirah, and Carignane. The bottle sports a cutting-edge, metal label that resembles a vintage, gated shifter and the cork is topped with a five-speed shift knob.

THE 24 (SRP $66) is a Rhone-style blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, and Syrah, with Malbec for added spice and character. The beautiful metal chronograph label pays homage to the Rolex timepiece which counts down the thrilling 24-hour races at Daytona and Le Mans.

APEX (SRP $76) blends Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Petite Sirah with a stunning metal Apex curbing on the bottle. To a race car driver, the apex is the point at which you are at the optimal line of the corner and winning depends on hitting the perfect apex.
