Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
The dark violet hue of our Louis M. Martini Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is indicative of its decadent blackberry, cassis and black cherry aromas and flavors. Earthy notes of truffle, smoky cedar and dried herbs unfold around this wine’s assertive tannins that will soften with age. Rich, expansive and well-structured with a long, lingering finish, this wine has aging potential of a decade or more. A phenomenal vintage for Cabernet Sauvignon, fruit from 2013 showed excellent intensity, translating into fully ripe and well-structured dark fruit flavors in the wines.
