Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley California Mountain 1975

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This was even darker than the 1974 with a dark stewed character on the nose and some bitter, leafy greens notes. With time the dark, almost coal like minerality pops out with a touch of old tootsie roll and carob adding interest and leading to the development of a very fudgy nose. This really had a lovely texture with everything integrated yet balanced, a sense of elegance and proportion with a long finish that reveals echos of the earth, old wood, and spicy red berry fruit that used to populate the palate. Again a bottle with less than ideal fill, very high shoulder but one that retains a very fine sense of what it was and still offers some enjoyment.

Louis M. Martini Winery:
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.
