Louis M Martini Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
|Brand||Louis M Martini|
Wine Review OnlineTop-notch Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon for less than $40 a bottle is rare, but it does exist. The 2012 from Louis Martini offers a glimpse of the magic of Napa Valley Cabernet, with a richly textured, powerful wine from this vintage. It shows aromas of blackberry and currant, with finely integrated tannins and a dollop of sweet oak. Platinum award winner at the 2015 Critics Challenge International Wine Competition
Wine SpectatorModerately rich and layered, with black cherry, plum, currant and light cedary oak notes. This shows impressive balance and depth of flavor, ending with gravelly, fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2023. 53,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastRich blackberry and chocolate form around chalky tannins and a juicy palate, with a waft of cigar in the distance. Medium bodied, round and soft, the finish is brushed in cherry and pomegranate.
