    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 2% Syrah and 1% Petite Verdot.

    The Louis M. Martini Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a deep garnet color with intense aromas of ripe cherry, cassis, and pipe tobacco. Concentrated flavors of ripe plums, and dark bing cherries marry perfectly with the oak nuances. This is a well structured wine that is balanced with firm, velvety tannins which culminate in a long, elegant finish with hints of tobacco, dried herbs and fruit. This wine is ready to enjoy now or can be aged for 3-5 years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A strong line-up of Napa offerings from Louis M. Martini includes a superb bargain, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, a 7,000-case blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, and the rest Syrah and Petit Verdot. Its deep ruby/plum color is accompanied by sweet blue and red fruits intertwined with hints of loamy soil, licorice, and subtle background oak. With good flavor as well as silky tannins, this well-balanced, concentrated 2006 should be even better over the next 10-15 years. It is a big-time sleeper of the vintage.

    Special for the price. A bold, dry cab that complements grilled meat.

    Very good, a bit better than the 90-rating. Best when poured through an aerator and allowed to breathe.

    For the price you spend, this is an OKAY wine. It is worth trying, but keep in mind that nothing special.
