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...

Deep and dark purplish red. Layered nose with cocoa leaves, tobacco, and some dark dusty berries. Medium plus tannins (6.5/10) and medium plus to almost full bodied. Dark palate with black cherries, black currants, coconut, vanilla and a touch herbaceous in the medium plus to long finish. Drink till 2028. (91+)

It's not a car race with lots of left and right turns. This is a straight line drag race! Do ya get what I'm sayin people?

Really enjoyed this cab, but I wouldn't say it's twice as good as the lower shelf Louis martini. Great flavors. Fruity and smooth without being sweet

Deep dark color, extraordinary blueberry, white flowers and a hint of licorice and spice. Very pure and precise.
