The 2015 Martinez Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is Melka's debut from this Pritchard Hill vineyard situated at 1200 feet above St. Helena. This a stunning wine was aged for 22 months in 85% new French oak ans consists of an intriguing blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Petit Verdot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The wine itself begins with creme de cassis, exotic spices, green bell pepper, mocha and anise aromas that build in the glass. The palate is exceedingly dense and plush with intense anise, creme de cassis, black olive tapenade and black cherry cordial flavors that impress through the finish. This is absolutely outstanding already and will continue to drink remarkably well for many years to come.
