"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a big wine and an absolutely fabulous value in Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. It bursts onto the palate with expressive dark fruit, sweet spices and licorice, showing marvelous depth all the way through to the creamy, generous finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016." (WA)

Winery Notes:
From the best grapes come the best wines. More than 75 years ago, Louis M. Martini adopted this philosophy as he constructed his winery in the heart of Napa Valley. Today, Louis M. Martini winery continues to craft impressive vintages with the same philosophy. A veritable Eden for growers, Napa Valley offers a favorable combination of temperate climate and rich soils for cultivating the world’s finest Cabernet Sauvignon. Sunny, warm, dry days give way to cool evenings, giving fruit time to ripen slowly and develop complex character. Vines thrive in well-drained gravely soils of volcanic and maritime origins.
