Martin Estate 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Estate

Nobody can dispute that Cabernet Sauvignon is the ‘King of Grapes’ in California’s Napa Valley, and when those grapes come from Martin Estate’s Rutherford Estate vineyard, the result is something truly special. Since the first vintage in 2000, Martin Estate has earned itself a position among the top California Cabernet producers, and year after year, it’s easy to see why. The award-winning 2012 MartinEstate Cabernet Sauvignon is dark garnet in color with aromas and flavors of black cherry, blackberry, vanilla, chocolate fudge cake, fennel, sage, and toffee. The rich, soft palate also shows the distinctive, earthy “Rutherford dust” characteristic the region is known for. A long finish with notes of cherry, cocoa and allspice linger with just a touch of oak. [+]
