    Winemaker's Notes:

    This structurally dense, full-bodied and complex wine was crafted to capture the essence of Napa Valley's diverse mountain terroirs. It offers ripe and concentrated aromas and flavors of blackberry and blueberry along with toasty sweet oak. The intensity of the dark fruit flavors in Lot 1 Cabernet Sauvignon are both velvety and complex, showcasing nuances of chocolate, hints of brown and black spice, culminating in a soft and elegant finish. This wine can be cellared for 10 years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Lot 1 emerges from the glass with beautifully delineated black fruit, flowers, mint, licorice and tar, all of which come together beautifully on a vibrant powerful frame. Despite its size, the Lot. 1 shows remarkable freshness and vibrancy. It is a beautiful, totally classy wine. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.

    This has been pretty much Martini's best Cabernet Sauvignon over the last few years, and with this ’08, the winery commits itself to playing in the major leagues. It’s very rich and ripe in sweet blackberries and cherries, with a tremendous oak coat, and the tannin-acid structure is of the highest order. Should age effortlessly over the next 12 years, at least.

    Ripe, plump and generous, with supple spice, currant, blackberry and cedar flavors. Full-bodied and smooth-textured, with the fruit flavors building gracefully. Drink now through 2020. 500 cases made.
