Winemaker's Notes:

"Martini's flagship Cab is a blockbuster. It is exceptionally ripe, with lush currant and cassis flavors that have a laserlike concentration. There's a good deal of new oak, but the massive flavors are easily able to handle it. The result is a special success for this vintage."
-Wine Enthusiast

Aroma profiles of sage, blackberry, cassis, pomegranate, sweet anise, green peppercorn, cocoa and cedar. A very full and opulent mouth with rich, fleshy texture and flavors of clove, blackberry, chocolate and toffee followed by a soft, long finish.
