2014 Marston Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
This Limited Library Release showcases the ageability of the estate, and brings together vibrancy and effortless balance in the bottle.
The 2014 vintage marks our forty-first growing season in the Napa Valley. We strive to produce a classic, distinctive wine that expresses the complexity of our terraced hillside vineyards along the southern edge of the Spring Mountain District. Each year we select and hand cultivate our favorite blocks of the 40-acre estate vineyard to produce a limited amount of Marston Family Vineyard Estate Cabernet Sauvignon.
As the drought intensified and the pendulum swung from classic 2012 undertones to the hedonistic power of 2013, we managed to capture even more intensity with the 2014 vintage.
Winemaker Tasting Notes:
“A beautiful bouquet of black raspberry, pomegranate, rose hips, violets, acai black tea and hints of cloves. The wild blackberry front leads to a full mouth of cassis, black raspberry, blueberry and hints of fresh tea leaf. The layers of complexity in the mid-palate are enhanced by young, elegant tannins delivering a weightless, yet concentrated finish of exceptional length.” - Marbue Marke
