Complex aromatics and polished tannins define this full-bodied archetypal Rutherford Cabernet. The Martin Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from grape vines growing at the southern side of the Puerta Dorada Vineyard, where the soil drains less quickly than other areas of the property. These vines are moderately stressed, thus yielding concentrated and flavorful fruit. Aged exclusively in French oak barrels from select artisan cooperages, the wine morphs into a divinely balanced, elegant creation: Made by nature, guided by a dedicated team with exquisite winemaking skills.
Enjoyable upon release, this sumptuous Cabernet presents the bottled truth of what the right vineyard can do. Drink now, or cellar for 10 to 15 years.
