Louis M Martini Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
|Brand||Louis M Martini|
Wine AdvocateConsistently one of the great values in Cabernet Sauvignon from Northern California is Louis M. Martini's Sonoma County 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Petitie Sirah, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. They make 353,000 cases of it, so there shouldn't be many complaints about finding it. This is another beauty from the Martinis, aged in a combination of French and American oak staves in tank. The wine is dark ruby/purple and displays delicious black and red currant fruit with some underlying soil and underbrush nuances. Savory, fruity, rich, supple and just a delicious, medium to full-bodied mouthful of Cabernet Sauvignon, it should be drunk over the next 5-7 years.
