Winemaker's Notes:

"This winery, now owned by Gallo, has one of the great old Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in northern California at their disposal, the Monte Rosso Vineyard. All of these Cabernets are relatively young, and reveal very good upside potential. For starters, the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa possesses a dark ruby/purple color as well as a big, rich nose of black currant, loamy soil and underbrush scents, medium body and a firm structure. While accessible, it promises to evolve for 10-15 years."

My Notes:

About Louis Martini:

For more than 75 years, the Martini family winemakers have crafted world-class Cabernet Sauvignon wines from the exceptional vineyards of Sonoma and Napa counties. Louis M. Martini embodied a simple, honest premise: The best grapes make the best wines. Today, Michael Martini, third generation winemaker carries on this tradition at the historic winery in Napa Valley with his range of unforgettable Cabernet Sauvignon wines.
