Louis Martini Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma 2009
The Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted from several of Sonoma County's most prestigious appellations and blended seamlessly to bring together the unique characteristics of each, creating a superbly balanced Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine offers many layers, featuring aromas and flavors of red cherry, blackberry and fresh sage with an underlying dry creek dustiness. Subtle herbal notes are complemented by additional layers of chocolate and vanilla, resulting in a complex, yet easy drinking, wine.
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.
Editorial Reviews for Louis Martini Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma
Rich mocha, toast, leather and vanilla aromas top a core of slightly herbal black currant and spicy plum fruit. Round and opulent on entry with soft acidity, this quickly turns inky and tough on the palate with plenty of wood tannins and an extracted feel. Chewy and dark, with wild cherry, plum and blackberry flavors all wrapped up in copious wood spice, this is a big, intense wine that finishes with lots of tannin and power, even revealing a bit more zippiness of acidity that the palate seems to deliver. Big, chewy and powerful, there isn't a lot of nuance or detail here. 88pts
