2018 Louis Martini 'Lot 1' Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma
Winemaker Notes: Our acclaimed Lot 1 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is the pinnacle of our portfolio. Its history dates to 1952, when Louis P. Martini began selecting exceptional lots to showcase the finest Cabernet Sauvignon character and flavors. Today, that legacy continues with winemaker Michael Eddy, who chooses the best fruit from Napa Valley’s most premium vineyards for Lot 1, a wine that draws raves from the world’s top critics.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Very deep purple-black, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lot 1 explodes from the glass with vibrant black cherries, mulberries and redcurrant jelly scents followed by a core of crème de cassis, cedar chest and roses plus hints of chocolate box and fragrant earth. Full-bodied, the palate delivers impactful, mouth-coating black fruits with a firm structure of grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing long with some mineral sparks coming through. Rating: 96+"
Wine Spectator - "This has a frankly toasty note overlaying rich cassis, plum and boysenberry compote flavors, while licorice root, loam and roasted mesquite notes fill in on the finish. Not shy in the muscular approach. For fans of the style. Best from 2023 through 2036."
