This is a wine of thrilling levels of intensity, with an incredible fragrance of spring flowers, blue fruits, black fruits, especially crème de cassis and blackberry, loamy soil undertones, and a touch of licorice and smoke.Read full article
Monte Rosso Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
One of California’s most historic vineyards, Monte Rosso is nestled 1,200 feet above the Sonoma Valley in the majestic Mayacamas mountain range. The red volcanic soils and low-yielding old vines on this steep, rugged mountaintop have produced treasured grapes for our family’s portfolio of fine wines since founder Louis M. Martini purchased the legendary vineyard in 1938.
2012 Our Louis M. Martini Monte Rosso Cabernet Sauvignon was handcrafted from grapes 100 percent from the legendary Monte Rosso Vineyard in Sonoma Valley. This monumental red wine delivers complex aromas of black cherry, earth and the classic Monte Rosso spice. On the palate, the wine offers rich flavors of cassis and anise framed by notes of raspberry and black fig. Maturation in French and American Oak created tannins that melt seamlessly into a long, elegant, caramel finish.
