RATINGS

93Wine Enthusiast

This bold, flavorful wine offers well-integrated tones of red currant, dried cherry, dusty leather and clove. Savory and profound in elongated tannins, it holds its powerful ripeness and structure with pride...

92Wine Spectator

Well-crafted, offering a complex mix of rich berry and cherry fruit, with scents of dried herb and licorice that are supple and refined, gliding along on the palate to a happy finish.

92Vinous / IWC

...shows plenty of the nuance that makes wines from this site so compelling, along with an extra kick of textural richness that gives the wine a terrific sense of immediacy. Exotically ripe and inviting...

91The Wine Advocate

...an earthy/meaty/gamey nose with aromas of menthol, charcuterie, cassis and truffles. The medium to full-bodied mouth is firm and cedary with muscular fruit and a long, earthy finish.

PRODUCER

Louis M. Martini

Louis M. Martini is one of Napa Valley’s most historic wineries. It was founded by Louis M. Martini, who left his home in Genoa, Italy, to join his father in San Francisco in 1899. After experimenting with winemaking, the senior Martini sent his son back to Italy for 5 years to learn winemaking, and by 1911 the men were making wine for sale in rented space outside of San Francisco. Always known for its progressive thinking and attention to quality, the winery became one of the first and most successful large wineries in Napa Valley. In 2002 it was purchased by the Gallo family. The estate owns 700 acres and makes Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Malbec, Meritage and Petite Sirah.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
