  • "Top 100 Most Influential U.S. Winemakers. Aaron Pott is taking Napa Cabernet Sauvignon back to its roots avoiding artificially concentrated, super fruity wines championing profound single-vineyard reds. He also makes wines for star properties like Blackbird, Seven Stones, Quixote and Bello Family. Potts influences are far-ranging, he has managed Bordeaux châteaus and made wines all over the world, but his true inspiration is his home turf, Napa. He was named Winemaker of the Year in 2012 by Food & Wine Magazine." (Into Wine)

Basic Info

MARTIN ESTATE is located in Block B of the original Caymus Land Grant, in the heart of Napa Valley's premium Cabernet Sauvignon region now known as the "Rutherford Appellation". They specialize in age-worthy, elegant Bordeaux-style blends from the historic winery home of Napa pioneer Georges De Latour. Martin Estate wines are 100% Cabernet Sauvignon; grown, produced and bottled exclusively at the estate, which was established in 1887. If you like Caymus, you'll love this new discovery from the ultimate 'boutique' vineyard (only 7 ½ acres—all farmed organically) just next door to Caymus. Don't miss this extremely rare bottling from the family-owned vineyards that made a significant contribution to Caymus Cabernet vintages 1999 – 2002.
