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.

Deep and austere black fruit flavors, cedar and spice, with toast and leather. Black licorice sweetness added to extracted black fruit and cocoa.

Beautiful nose, nicely integrated oak, needs time to open up (about 1/2 hour). Very smooth with a medium length finish, but not very complex. A nice cab at the $20.level.

This notable example first presents inviting aromas of cassis, sweet herbs and hints of pipe tobacco. On the palate, it exhibits a firm structure and intriguing flavors of ripe black cherries, deep, briary red fruits and old-world complexities that linger through a memorable finish.

Well-made and tightly knit, with subtle plum and cherry flavors woven with notes of mineral, cedar and dried herbs. Full-bodied, ending with a complex finish
