2014 vintage notes
93-95 points Wine Advocate: "An elegant, focused 2014 from this team, the 2014 Lonely Heart Cabernet Sauvignon offers lots of crisp black raspberry, cassis, violets and graphite in a fresh, full-bodied, nicely concentrated style."
Holy WOW. Stunningly pure Cabernet, this is clearly one of Washington State's flagship Cabernets. Incredible wine - as good as Washington gets. - M&A
2013 vintage notes
94-97 points Wine Advocate: "The star of the 2013s is without a doubt the 2013 Lonely Heart Cabernet Sauvignon! This is the top wine of the estate and it's the first wine that's put together in the cellar (the Dead Horse functions as a second wine) and in 2013 it's a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. Gorgeous on all counts, with full-bodied concentration, building tannin and lots of cassis, lead pencil shavings, violets and spring flower aromas and flavors, this thrilling wine will stand toe-to-toe with the greatest Cabernets coming out of Washington. As with all of this team's wines, it has an elegance and seamlessness that will allow it to impress on release, yet it will still benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring and keep for 25 years."
2012 vintage notes
94-96+ points Wine Advocate: "...the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Lonely Heart is a rich, structured and tannic effort that will demand cellaring. Coming from Red Mountain, and possessing fabulous aromatics of darker styled fruits, dried earth, mineral and liquid violets, this full-bodied beauty has fabulous purity of fruit, a stacked mid-palate and building tannin that comes through on the finish. Give it 4 to 5 years and drink through 2032."
Lonely Heart is Mark's epic Red Mountain Cabernet. Bold aromas of bramble, saddle leather, hints of cedar, and fresh cut hay. Black licorice, plums, cracked black pepper, grilled steak, clove, wet tobacco and black cherry. The palate has beautiful balance as layers of oak meld with polished textures and incredible length.
