Louis Martini’s latest Napa Valley cab — one of the more entry-level though perfectly palatable bottlings — has arrived. This year’s bottling is lush and seductive, loaded with fresh and dried berries, but not overtly sweet or jammy, with overtones of milk chocolate, nutmeg, and fresh cherries. The finish is supple and seductive, with hints of vanilla. And yet… it’s less dessert-like than all of that sounds, pairing well with food and drinking beautifully on its own today. No need to cellar.
Full-bodied, with concentrated and complex flavours of blackcurrant, cedar, toast, spice, vanilla. Drinking well now, and will continue to evolve. This Napa Cabernet is very keenly priced for this expensive region.
