Marbue Marke, 2018 “Winemaker of the Year,” is both a remarkable talent and a remarkable story. He left Sierra Leone to become a doctor in the US. But the wine bug got him, and he earned an oenology degree at UC Davis instead.

For the Sixteen Appellations, he managed to pry away (or charm away) some precious fruit from top wineries that NEVER sell their fruit. 

But his pride, and that of Italics, is their own extraordinary vineyard in Coombsville.

From this great vineyard, and in the great 2016 vintage, Marke made just over 700 cases of this remarkable 52% Cabernet/48% Merlot blend.

The winery says:

A layered nose of fresh raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, cocoa, chocolate and coffee bean. A black raspberry attack, leads to a layered mouth of plum, black cherry, roasted marshmallow, fresh cocoa, and fresh tea leaf. Dark chocolate shoulder tannins melt into a lingering silky aftertaste of blackberry.

This is just devastatingly delicious now, but should age brilliantly, too.

If you really want to impress someone with a special wine you serve or gift, look no further.
