Wine Review: This nearly opaque purple Cabernet Sauvignon has an inviting bouquet of red raspberry, blueberry, leather and toasted oak. This is a solid everyday wine. It is medium to full bodied, with chewy tannins and balanced acidity. I enjoyed its tasty ripe fruit flavors of blackberry, blueberry and plum with caramel and mocha notes on the palate that lead to a lingering slightly spicy finish. This would be enjoyable with a medium rare lamb burger with tzatziki sauce. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: The Louis M. Martini 2013 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon hails from several of the county's most prestigious vineyards, whose unique characteristics were combined to create a rich, superbly balanced Cabernet Sauvignon. A reflection of the warmer vintage, the wine offers ripe flavors of blackcurrant and jammy black plum accented by notes of caramelized oak and baking spice. The round, plush mouthfeel offers firm structure framed by a fruit-focused finish.
