Winemaker's Description: Louis M. Martini Lot 1 Cabernet Sauvignon captures the essence of Napa Valley’s distinctive terroir. This is a big wine—dark, dense and rich—with pronounced blackberry and blackcurrant notes, suggestions of licorice and dark cherry, and layers of cocoa, tobacco and clove. Full-bodied, it has a richly fruited mid-palate featuring cassis and coffee, and long finish marked by fruit and spice.
