Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Napa Cabernet from Louis Martini opens with an inviting black currant and oak bouquet with a hint of plum. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mild blueberry with hints of black currant and plum. The finish is dry and its flavors and very gentle tannins fade away nicely. This Cab is very food friendly and would pair perfectly with Kobe sliders. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Louis M. Martini Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a deep burgundy color with aromas of dark fruits, smoky cedar and dried herbs. Concentrated flavors of black cherry and blackberry are framed nicely by cedar and toast notes on the finish. Rich and broad in the mouth, this wine has a long finish with an expansive palate. 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.
