Winemaker's Notes:

The Louis M. Martini Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a deep burgundy color with intense aromas of blackberry, licorice, cedar and hints of dried herbs. Concentrated flavors of black cherry marry perfectly with the oak nuances, imparting notes of clove, vanilla and caramel. This is a well structured and balanced wine that is medium to full bodied, with a sweet mid-palate and a long, fruit-forward finish. This wine is ready to enjoy now or can be aged up to 5 years.

Blend: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petite Sirah and 4% Other
