This is a big wine, dark, dense & rich with pronounced blackberry & blackcurrent notes. Suggestions of licorice & cherry & layers of cocoa, tobacco & clove. Louis M. Martini Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a deep burgundy colour with aromas of dark fruit, smoky cedar and dried herbs. Concentrated flavours of black cherry and blackberry are framed nicely by cedar and toasted oak on the finish. This wine is rich and broad on the palate and has a long finish.The 2012 vintage was another ideal growing season. Cooperative weather in the spring, abundant warmth throughout the summer and the late arrival of rain in the fall allowed for wonderful fruit development. The result of this exquisite vintage is Cabernet Sauvignon of vibrant colour, intense dark fruit flavours, ripe and rich texture and an impressive finish.
