Louis M Martini Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Louis M. Martini Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a deep burgundy color and complex aromas of dark fruit, smoky cedar and dried herbs. Concentrated flavors of black cherry and blackberry are framed by licorice and toast on the long finish. Rich and broad in the mouth, this wine has an expansive mid-palate, silky tannins and excellent balance.

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.

Nice smooth wine from start to finish. Let this decant for a hour and it taste like a $50 bottle. Love this wine.

Excellent cab for the price - drinks like a higher end wine - firm tannins - lots of berries - vanilla - smooth finish - great value!

This wine has a great berry punch while maintaining some complexity. Has flavors of chocolate, cassis, and oak as well. Decant and let sit for an hour before drinking. Great with steak and meats. One of my favorite Cabs in this price range. Maybe a little overpowering for some palates Martini really did a great job blending different wines

Middle of the road cab, forgettable. Lots of interesting elements, but nothing that stands out or lasts.

Good complexity for such an inexpensive wine. A mix of Napa and Sonoma, so you get a nice mix of those reigon's characteristics.

For more than 75 years, the Martini family winemakers have crafted world-class Cabernet Sauvignon wines from the exceptional vineyards of Sonoma and Napa counties.

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.

Louis M. Martini winery blends Cabernet Sauvignon from both Napa and Sonoma vineyards to create Ghost Pines. Dark berry fruit blends in with toasted vanilla flavors with firm tannins.

90 points from Robert Parker: `One of the finest bargains in California Cabernet Sauvignon must be Louis M. Martini's outstanding 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma. The good news is there are 140000 cases produced. Fabulously sweet aromas of black currants licorice and cedar soar from the glass of this medium to full-bodied wine. With silky tannins as well as surprising concentration depth and texture this 2006 should drink well for 8-10 years.`
