Is a good, steady weeknight dinner cab. Not over the top with fruit or body which was nice. But needs a little more complexity for me to rate higher. I would drink again on Tuesday night.

Classic Louis Martini, the 2013 Alexander Valley Cabernet is rife with steeped blackberries, plums, and black fruit in general. I've lingered over this glass trying to tease out which ones. A top note of cedar and dried thyme re-emerges on the back palate along with firm tannins and medium + acidity. As with all Louis Martini wines, they have the stuffing to last, and are well-priced for what they deliver. I haven't have a chance to age any of these, because I have have no cellar. If I did, well...
