Louis M Martini Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Alexander Valley|
|Brand||Louis M Martini|
Tones of clove, bay leaf and sage ride over a core of big black fruit in this youthfully tannic wine. An accent of tobacco arises on the midpalate and leads to a robust, lasting peppery finish.
Offers a core of steeped black currant and licorice notes, picking up tobacco and minerally details on the sneakily long finish. Needs a touch of cellaring for this to drop its toast. Best from 2020 through 2022. 28,000 cases made.
