"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Marston Vineyard comes from the higher slopes of Spring Mountain and is always a small cuvee of about 291 cases. This wine always reveals floral notes intermixed with blueberries and black raspberries as well as hints of licorice and incense. The 2014 is delicious, full of fruit extract, full-bodied, up-front and sexy." - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, December 2016
The 2014 vintage offered an ideal growing season. Although California's drought brought another dry winter the growing season started with a warm, dry spring and relatively early bud break. Summer was mild and consistent with even, warm temperatures. Throughout the Napa Valley the season was even and tempered with no heat spikes or early rain. Warm days with plenty of sunshine and cool evenings allowed for excellent ripening, phenolic and flavor development in the grapes. Overall, vintage 2014 wines are of very high quality.
Marston Vineyard perches on the slopes of Spring Mountain to the west of Saint Helena, just a few miles uphill from the site of the Beringer brothers' original Saint Helena Home vineyard. The restrictive soil, mostly stony loam, produces grapes with highly developed fruit flavors. Within the vineyard, the terrain rises from 1,900 to 2,000 feet, varying between steep, terraced slopes to gently rolling land. The 2000 Marston Cabernet has perfumed scents of violets and wild blueberries, with lots of spice and a touch of Spring Mountain 'dust,' giving it a distinctive earthy, mineral quality. Its firm tannins support concentrated red and black fruit flavors into a long finish. 200 cases produced.
