Hidden in the shadows of the Mayacamas mountains on the alluvial fan of western Oakville, Martha's Vineyard continues to embody the pedigree of being named the first single vineyard-designated wine in Napa Valley. The 2016 vintage showcases this prized vineyard in all its glory; notes of wild black fruit, thyme, mint, eucalyptus, and bay are lifted and enjoyed with the polished tannin and mouthwatering freshness of this wine. Known as a textbook vintage in Napa Valley, the 2016 Martha's Vineyard has been aged to perfection for immediate enjoyment at release and will continue to reward for the next 20+ years.

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. 2,500 cases made.
