For more than 80 years, the Louis M. Martini Winery has crafted world-class Cabernet Sauvignon from the exceptional vineyards of Napa and Sonoma counties using the simple, honest premise that the best grapes make the best wines. Today, this legacy continues at the historic winery in the Napa Valley with an acclaimed collection of unforgettable Cabernet Sauvignon wines.
For this wine the primary fruit source was Barrelli Creek Vineyard on the west side of Alexander Valley, a region winemaker Michael Eddy refers to as a hidden gem for Cabernet. The vineyard’s slopes and well-drained, gravelly soils help to build and maintain acid levels, a crucial component to premium Cabernet Sauvignon. An ample amount of Petite Sirah from the historic Monte Rosso Vineyard provides added depth and structure to create a rich, full-body, with a lasting finish.
The Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon continues the winegrowing and winemaking approach that has garnered consistent critical acclaim. Bold, dark fruit notes of plum and black currant mingle with hints of baking spice to create a layered palate, whilst intense fruit flavours, fine acidity and subtle layers of spice and earth further distinguish the Alexander Valley Cabernet from its richer Napa cousins.
