Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon California 2005
Enjoyable and well-balanced. A lot of black cherry flavor. Not too tart in the mouth. The tartness spikes on swallowing, then slowly and pleasantly fades to a murmur. Hard to go wrong with this one,Add winemaker's notes
We believe that Cabernet Sauvignon is the most noble of grapes. We believe that great winemaking begins with great vineyards, and we want the land to speak through our wines. Our wines express the best characteristics of Cabernet, the personality of the special places where our grapes are grown, and the vision and skill of the winemaker in blending balanced, engaging, and memorable wines.

Nope. Not corked, just real close to horrible.
Black Cheery, nicely balanced, nice finish. Good value.
Well balanced, showing plum, black cherry cola flavors with hints of oak. Good value can't go wrong at this price.
Had this wine in 2010... eventually it was sold out in stores and got a case for my birthday!! Highly recommended if you like velvety, smooth, long finishes on your cab.
Noticeably better then the non-reserve, but both are extremely good and smooth.
External Reviews for Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon California
The Louis M. Martini winery was founded in the early 1930's to express the best characteristics of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape. The grapes used for this cuvée comes from some of the warmer plots in the Alexander Valley, producing a wine that is rich in flavors of dark chocolate, coffee bean, and cassis followed by silky tannins.
It’s very well balanced, with gorgeous wild cherry fruit and a round, smooth texture. It’ll age, too, perhaps for as much as 15 years.
