Heavily oaked, no doubt, Vanilla extract and eucalyptus. Some of that sweaty sock Grenache but not so putrid. Wet dog???? Muddled fruit.

Almost impossible to label the correct bottling - I surrender!
Enjoyable. Manufactured. Open/knit. Over-oaked. Vanillin r us. But then, I’m easy to please.

Everything I like about Napa cabs. Great tannins and structure yet fruit forward. I like it better than the Sonoma cab from LM.

It’s been open for 24 hours. Can’t believe about to say this… Absolutely fantastic.

Sporting classic notes of pencil shavings, black currants, mint, and fine dust, Louis Martini's 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is like a no-frills 4-door sedan. Its structure is concentrated on the fore palate, with firm, fine tannins followed by plush blackberries, black Italian plums, figs, spice and anise, delivering Napa Cab expression at a reasonable price. There is even a dusting of cocoa powder on the exhaust pipe. Sample
