Louis M Martini Lot 1 Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Louis M Martini|
A soft, juicy red with licorice and aniseed undertones to the blueberries and sage. Candy. Medium to full body with agility and elegance. Drinkable now, but better in 2022..February/2020
A rich, lush style, with creamed plum, blueberry and warmed blackberry compote flavors gliding along, laced with cocoa and warm earth notes. A black licorice note drapes over the fruit on the finish, and there's a violet note hanging in the background. Large-scaled and well-defined. Best from 2022 through 2035.
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Lot 1 (made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon) gives up loads of exotic spice notes-Chinese five spice, hoisin, fenugreek and cardamom-with a core of crème de cassis, prunes and plum pudding. Full-bodied, the decadently fruited palate has tons of spicy sparks and a chewy texture with chargrill notes on the finish. 1,300 cases were made.
