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

Blackberry, black cherry, eucalyptus, dusty, oak chips, a little chocolate, nice finish with good acidity, medium plus tannins, solid structure. Good value for Napa Cabernet.

I probably should have brought wine but I was kinda hoping they'd have a cool old school list. They didn't. It's fruity and oaky but happily not as fruity and oaky as I thought it would be.

Dark fruit, spice, floral. M+ tannin and beautifully balanced. Great price for a really good napa Cabernet Sauvignon.

Dark core with ruby rim.

Funny greenish nose with red fruits. Palate of red fruits with red bell pepper and tons of regular black pepper. This is a good Napa cab.
