"One of the finest bargains in California Cabernet Sauvignon must be Louis M. Martini's outstanding 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma. Fabulously sweet aromas of black currants, licorice, and cedar soar from the glass of this medium to full-bodied wine. With silky tannins as well as surprising concentration, depth, and texture, this 2006 should drink well for 8-10 years."
-Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
The 2006 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted from several of Sonoma County's most prestigious appellations and blended seamlessly to bring together the unique characteristics of each, creating a superbly balanced Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine offers many layers, featuring aromas and flavors of red cherry, blackberry and fresh sage with an underlying dry creek dustiness. Subtle herbal notes are complemented by additional layers of chocolate and vanilla, resulting in a complex, yet easy drinking, wine.
can please someone tell me haw many months in oak previous to its release?? thank you
easily worth $20 bottle.
Good body, fine finish, good flavors of berries and black cherry but not too fruity.
This wine will sit in the cellar for at least a year!
This is a very ordinary tasting wine and not woth the money
Louis Martini has a long history of producing top value Cabernet Sauvignon. Their 2006 Sonoma is no exception. For under $16, you'd be hard pressed to find a better Cabernet Sauvignon from California.
this cab was ok. Can't complain, but can't rave. It was a great value!
paired with a Ribeye steak, lightly salted and peppered, accents well with olive oil in cooking
The best I can say is, it's OK. Not spectacular, not terrible.
I liked it for the value, but did not love it.
Martini, Inglenook and Beaulieu were the only cabs I drank in the 1960's. Quality tanked. This cab is a nice reminder of the good old days. A pleasant, good value cab from CA with a historic name.
I don't see 90 points in this wine. Weak, lacks body.
