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, thus delivering Napa Cab expression at a reasonable price. There is even a dusting of cocoa powder on the exhaust pipe. Sample

Pretty solid and dry wine, good bite and leaves quite the impression. I could just be saying that because I’ve been slamming $8 bottles this week idk

Drank this with a filet mignon and brussels+panchetta at 1875 Steakhouse in French Lick, Indiana. Surprised I went with this over the Malbec option. Very chewy tannins that demand accompaniment. The dark cherry, slightly spicy, very slightly earthy body really opens up with food. Happy with my choice!

Picking up cherry, vanilla and cedar it’s solid for the price point.

This is a very strong Cabernet Sauvignon! Received a memorable bottle with my name on it at the SouthWest Recruiting Conference in Houston for E&J Gallo (Spring 2018).

Chocolate-covered cherries, well balanced, black currants. Everything I want in a cab and then some.
