Louis M. Martini NAPA Cab Sauv 2018 (Napa Valley, CA)
Producer Notes: Notes of of black cherry, blackberry and plum are complemented by hits of toasted oak, dried currant and baking spice. Fine-grained tannins and ample brightness on the palate give way to a polished mouthfeel and exceptionally long finish.
Blend: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petite Sirah, 2% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec, 1% Merlot
James Suckling, 93 Points A slightly high-toned red with walnut, berry, chocolate and spice on the nose and palate. Medium-to full-bodied with chewy tannins and a rich finish. A little firmer and tighter than in the past, which equates to a more serious red. A touch of petit sirah in this. Drink or hold.
Wine Spectator, 91 Points Solid and direct, with a core of plum sauce and cassis wrapped in warm vanilla-accented toast. Picks up tobacco and licorice root hints through the grippy finish.
Wine Enthusiast, 90 Points This wine delivers flavors of jammy blackberry, cherry, dark chocolate and graham cracker that make for a decadent, approachable experience. Drinkable now, it will please an array of palates. Editors' Choice.
