2014 Martin Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon, Family Collection, Coombsville
Now this is a Cabernet Sauvignon that shows off the personality of its Coombsville vineyard site. It opens with aromas of black cherry, sweet cranberry, toasted barrel spices, pencil shavings and flint. Flavors of cherry, red plum, clove, graphite, and smoke glide across the palate in weightless fashion. As the finish goes on and on, the wine’s slightly grippy tannins are finally revealed. It’s a mesmerizing combination of rugged flavor and civilized structure. Drink up!
