90 points Wine Enthusiast: The 2009 is a big wine and an absolutely fabulous value in Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. It bursts onto the palate with expressive dark fruit, sweet spices and licorice, showing marvelous depth all the way through to the creamy, generous finish.
Medium-dark ruby; attractive, tight, herbal, cedary, cassis and blackberry fruit aroma with hints of tobacco and green olive; medium-full to full body; rich, plush, textured, currant and blackberry fruit flavors with a trace of vanilla; medium-full tannin; lingering aftertaste.
The Louis M. Martini Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from vineyards up and down the Napa Valley. This wine exhibits a deep burgundy color with intense aromas of cassis, sweet herbs and hints of pipe tobacco. Intriguing flavors of ripe black cherries, deep, briary red fruits, and old world complexities linger throughout the finish. This is a well structured and balanced wine that is medium-to-full-bodied and is ready to enjoy now or can be aged up to 5 years.
