Food Pairings for Martin Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford
= 10% discount + FREE SHIPPING! Why? If you like Caymus, you'll love this new discovery from the ultimate 'boutique' vineyard (only 7 acres) just next door to Caymus. Don't miss this extremely rare, first time bottling from the family owned vineyards that made a significant contribution to Caymus Cabernet vintages 1999 - 2002. TASTE? The blockbuster 2003 Martin Estate possesses extremely well balanced tannins perfectly woven into an array of dark fruit blackberry, plums, and figs. This noble creation possesses a restrained elegance reminiscent of a fine $100+ Bordeaux while delivering on the power and finesse we've grown to love from Caymus Special Selection and other neighboring vineyards. This tightly woven gem requires a full 2 hours of decanting before revealing its luster of complex, spicy fruit, white pepper and a hint of black olive tappenade on the sultry finish. Age-worthy and masterful, the Martin Estate 2003 will continue to thrill for the next decade, peaking around 2012 in our estimate. PORTHOS INSIDER SCOOP: MARTIN ESTATE is located in Block B of the original Caymus Land Grant, in the heart of Napa Valley's premium Cabernet Sauvignon region now known as the "Rutherford Appellation". Our #1 pick for an age-worthy, elegant Bordeaux-style blend from the historic winery home of Napa pioneer Georges De Latour in 1887.
