This wine is fresh and bright. With more acidity and focus on red fruit flavors than most Cabernet, this wine is sizable and will age for decades, but has a gorgeous, perfumed elegance that is accessible now.

This is the first year Marietta has produced this Cabernet Sauvignon from a south-facing vineyard perched at 1400 feet elevation overlooking the Yorkville Highlands. This small block of clone 6 Cabernet is cane pruned and yields "2 tons per acre in a good year via many insanely small open clusters". It was aged in neutral barrels for 20 months. Deep garnet-purple, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Game Trail displays a spicy nose of cloves, cinnamon and Sichuan pepper over a core of crème de cassis, dried Mediterranean herbs and black soil. Medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated, the generous fruit is well supported by grainy tannins and a lively backbone, finishing with lingering mineral suggestions.

Big and rich yet also complex and layered, this wine has an extremely dark color and spicy, floral, perfumed fruit flavors that spread out for a mouthfilling texture. Full bodied, fascinating and luscious, it hails from a high-elevation vineyard in Mendocino County.
