THE PINNACLE OF OUR PORTFOLIO
Lot No.1 is Cabernet Sauvignon at its peak form of expression. Its history dates back over 70 years when Louis M. Martini began a practice that would become a hallmark of his winery. While tasting through Cabernet aging in the cellar, he began selecting exceptional lots, choosing ones that showcased the essence of Cabernet Sauvignon character and designating them to craft his finest wine.
"Year after year, Lot No.1 showcases standout blocks from iconic vineyards in Napa Valley, resulting in a blend that exhibits power, depth and intensity with a discernible measure of polish and elegance." -Winemaker Michael Eddy
2019 LOT NO.1
Vintage 2019 was near perfect, with bountiful rain early in the year and fog-shrouded mornings over a long, warm summer providing abundant hang-time teasing out great color, structure and soft tannins
2018 LOT NO.1
The 2018 vintage began like 2017, with plentiful winter rains. A consistently warm and steady summer eased into a mild fall, resulting in a slightly later harvest that delivered beautifully developed fruit with outstanding mountainside characteristics.
Winemaker Michael Eddy discusses the quality and characteristics of the 2019 vintage.
2015 LOT NO.1
The 2015 season was warm and dry, and one of the earliest we’ve seen. It started with warm temperatures in late winter and spring that led to an early bud break. A cool May during bloom created a smaller than average crop, then mild weather through spring, summer and harvest allowed slow, even ripening that built full ripeness and complexity.
2014 LOT NO.1
Our 2014 Lot 1 Cabernet Sauvignon has impressive depth, power and complexity—perennial hallmarks of Lot 1—starting with the intense aromas of blackberry jam, boysenberry and crème brulee. The palate has striking power and breadth and is filled with flavors that include blackberry, cherry, black currant and caramel in a plush mouthfeel.
