Winemaker's Notes:

The 2001 Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is an impressive, opulent wine with superb balance. The rich, intense color catches your eye immediately as the wine is poured into the glass. Swirl it, and take pleasure in the distinctive and enduring minty aroma that is so characteristic of this celebrated proprietary clone. This is an exciting wine from the Oakville appellation with a track record dating back to its first vintage in 1966. There is nothing like a Martha's Vineyard Cabernet – tried and true, it is a remarkable treasure from the Napa Valley.

"This quintessential Oakville Cab is seamless; indeed, if asked to name a perfect wine, I'd say this 2001 Martha's would fit the bill... Rich and at the ame time elegant; it's one of the most distinctive wines in the world and displays the much-sought-after terroir of its vineyard..."
