This ONE acre vineyard located next to Grace Family in St. Helena has been putting out some amazing wine over the past couple of years.  All courtesy of 100 Point winemaker Peter Heitz who turned this little piece of dirt in a pile of gold flakes!  The winery is owned by two couples, neighbors, the Martin and Croshaw families, thus MC4! The 2014 vintage marks the sixth release from this great venture and I am proud to serve it up!

The 2015 weather was nearly perfect for Cabernet, and this year’s release is one of the best MC4 releases to date. It reminds me of a combination of the awesome 2012 and 2013 vintages.

It has a gorgeous dark purple hue and exquisite aromas of black currant, chocolate, licorice and a touch of dust.  The wine is full in body, loaded with bright black stone fruit, chocolate,  anise and a whiff of subtle brown spice notes.  This youngster shows it potential immediately.  Only 88 cases of this youngster were produced. The wine’s mid-palate is very elegant, almost silky. The flavors keep on coming and lead into a long, yet unctuous tannin finish lasting a good 30 seconds. I was lucky get an extra allocation of this great wine, so hurry to get some of this great well-priced Napa Valley Estate Cabernet!

Winemaker notes: “The seventh release from the hand tended MC4 Estate.  Dark fruit, red pomegranate and subtle brown spice notes are darkened by roasted sage and ripe plum aromatics.  A focused entry widens, revealing dark berries, cassis and dark chocolate, accompanied by red lift and dimpled texturing.”

Robert Parker 94 Points: “Medium garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is scented of black raspberries, black cherries and blackberries with touches of pencil shavings, bay leaves and damp soil. Medium-bodied and packed with juicy red and black fruit flavors, it has a refreshing acid line and soft, approachable tannins, finishing long with a lovely herbal lift.”
