Louis M Martini NAPA CABERNET 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Louis M Martini|
A slightly squared-off, structured style, with a warm stone note around the core of steeped currant and black cherry fruit. Opens slowly with air to reveal more fruit, as well as a violet hint and a streak of cast iron on the finish. Cellaring should soften its shell. Best from 2021 through 2027. 49,450 cases made.
A touch reduced, this red is concentrated and smooth, with dense layers of dark chocolate and cassis. Dried herb and cedar accent the ripe, rich fruit and a note of nutmeg develops on the finish.
