Louis M Martini Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County|
|Brand||Louis M Martini|
Turned earth, forest and smoky oak mark this full-bodied, value-driven red wine that is additionally thick in tannin and brawny black fruit.
Blended of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petite Sirah, 2% Petit Verdot and 5% other varieties, aged for 18 months in French and American oak, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County features crushed red and black currants and warm plums on the nose with hints of dried herbs and pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm, chewy texture and a good amount of black fruit, finishing uncomplicated. 192,000 cases produced.
Frankly toasty, with a broad stroke of ganache dominating the more moderate cherry and plum fruit. A tobacco leaf note adds some range on the finish, but the toast just won't let go. Drink now through 2020. 205,000 cases made.
