Good Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Lot No. 1 Cabernet Sauvignon

/ 750ml
2012 Vintage

The concept of lot wines at Louis M. Martini dates back to 1952, when Louis P. Martini first made good, luxury Cabernet Sauvignon wines from selected vineyards that he named by lots. Today, we continue the legacy, selecting the best grapes from Napa Valley’s extraordinary mountaintop and benchland vineyards for this wine. Lot 1 is a sought-after wine that captures the essence of Napa Valley’s distinctive terroir.

This is a big & good Cabernet Sauvignon—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 a long finish marked by dark fruit and spice.

Winemaker notes:

Ideal conditions prevailed throughout the 2012 growing season in the Napa Valley wine region, making for a vintage wine which many have characterized as classic. We selected fruit from some of the best sites in the Napa Valley, including Stagecoach Vineyard in Atlas Peak (45%), Stags Leap (21%) and the balance from select other sites in the valley including Spring Mountain and the Silverado Bench.
