Yorkville Highlands AVA, California, United States
93 Points, Antonio Galloni (Vinous)
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Game Trail is a bold, brawny wine. Savory aromatics and burly tannins give the 2018 a bit of a rustic edge, and yet there is more than enough fruit to balance things out. This site planted at 1,400 feet in elevation in the Yorkville Highlands yields a Cabernet that is incredibly distinctive.
Marietta Cellars sits in the entrance to a small canyon off Alexander Valley. Known as Angeli Ranch after the family who originally settled here in 1886, this property’s vineyards connect gravel swales from the Russian River to terraced knolls invisible from the valley floor. The extremes of this site create a wine that is powerful but has surprising elegance and clarity.
Packed with grilled herbs, Bing cherries, and bright black currants. An aromatic layer of star anise and clove, complemented by earth and forest floor, provide ample savory balance. This wine is powerfully focused and intricately layered. Expressive of its incredible mountain ridge site, this is a terroir-driven, elegant California Cabernet Sauvignon. Our Game Trail Cabernet, farmed from a small block perched at 1400 ft. in a mountain ridge of the Yorkville Highlands, with coastal influences, and large diurnal shifts, which allow for the ideal balance of optimal ripeness of fruit, and retention of natural acidity.
