Appellation: Columbia Valley
Hall of Fame designated hitter Edgar Martinez collaborated with Victor Palencia on a bottling of 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon in commemoration of his recent induction at Cooperstown. However, it’s difficult to imagine that special project could drink any better than this hit. Dusty black fruit gathers up notes of sage and tobacco as chocolaty tannins and age-worthy acidity make for a seamless Cab that’s priced within reach of any fan.
Rated “Platinum” by Wine Press Northwest.
Production: 395 cases
