Located at the base of the Mayacamas mountains, Martha’s Vineyard’s gradual slope to the valley floor provides us with exquisite well-drained soil. The small yield in 2015 resulted in a wine of exceptional concentration in aromatics and structure that attests to the pedigree and acclaim for which this vineyard is renowned. We are honored to release another stunning vintage from one of the most prized vineyards in the Napa Valley.
A very inviting wine with rich aromas of boysenberry, cassis and mint all tightly woven around a sweet core. On the palate this Cabernet is firm with rich, savory notes of cigar box and chocolate, culminating in a silky finish. A compelling and flavorful wine.

Ratings & Reviews
94 Points & Cellar Selection - Wine Enthusiast:
"The mighty Martha's spends three-and-a-half years aging in French Limousin oak barrels. It has years to go, its structure so expertly captured in the bottle, yet still willing to impart a lightness of sage and sarsaparilla, the tannins firm and integrated, with slight hints of cigar, coconut and that ever-famous mint. Drink now through 2025." - Virginie Boone (11/1/2016)
