2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Martin Vineyard, Family Collection, Coombsville
Dark and decadent aromas of ripe plums, ripe blackberries, violets, vanilla, baked earth, and graphite soar from the glass. The palate of our 2015 Martin Cabernet is as rich as it gets, with dense and expressive flavors of blackberry, huckleberry, mulberry, milk chocolate, and dried violets that build to a long finish of loamy earth and toasted vanilla. Despite the richness of fruit, this wine is beguilingly graceful, with seamless tannins and a fresh core of acidity. This has it all. Arguably our favorite vintage of Martin yet. Get it while it lasts!
"A brooding, complex nose of cigar box, hot stones, spices, ash, tobacco, mulberries, violet extract and lots of smoke. The palate is dense but suave with plush tannins, an intermingling line of acidity and a long, chewy finish. Wonderful Coombsville character." - 94 Points, James Suckling
