Winemaker's Notes:

The concept of Lot wines at Louis M. Martini dates back to 1968 when Louis P. Martini, Michael's father, first made luxury Cabernet Sauvignons from selected barrels which he named by lot numbers. At that time, Louis P. Martini was making Cabernets in the league with other Napa Valley greats, George De Latour, Heitz Martha's Vineyard and Robert Mondavi. Sourcing of his fruit likely included Monte Rosso grapes and other vineyards from his friends in the Napa Valley. The Martini lot wines produced in the late 60s and early 70s were considered among the most collectible of Martini's wines. Once again, today, Michael Martini is able to enjoy access to premium Napa Valley vineyards and blend Cabernet Sauvignons from the best mountain fruit AVAs, just like his father did. Our new Lot 1 Cabernet Sauvignon is a shining example.
