(RP96) The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard barely
hints at eucalyptus on the nose, with much more emphasis given to black
cherries and cassis. This is full-bodied and rich, nicely balancing richness
and texture against linear shape and focus and picking up hints of blueberries
and spice on the long, mouthwatering finish. With 112 barrels having been
bottled, there's a fair bit of this wine to go around, if one can afford it.
(WS 95) #3 Wine Spectator Top 100 of
2021 This throws off an overt and alluring mint
aroma, while sweet bay leaf, violet, damson plum, red tea and steeped griotte
notes all glide through together, carried by remarkably fine-grained tannins.
Ends with a gentle echo of mint on the finish, while a subtle minerality chimes
through as well. A stylish and suave wine, with plenty of charm now, but also
pristine balance for cellaring. Best from 2022 through 2038.
