Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - This classic house has produced yet another powerful and prototypical Napa Cabernet that shows a complex nose of cassis, mocha, dried violet, and tart cranberry. Although rich in body, the palate has a lively acidity and minty herbal flavors to balance the decadent fruit. - 2017 Ultimate Wine Challenge (Tried & True Award).June/2017
James Suckling 91 points - Blueberry cake, eucalyptus, spice box and blackberry compote. Lots of underbrush character on the palate, which is full with chewy tannins, some fresh acidity and a fruity finish. Drink in 2020..December/2017
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.
