Louis Martini Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma
Discover Louis Martini Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma:
Louis M. Martini Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon wine reflects the best of the hot, narrow Dry Creek Valley and the warm, wind-cooled Alexandra Valley. Together, these unique properties create a rich, perfectly balanced Cabernet Sauvignon with abundant yet smooth tannins. These tannins make the young wine accessible, but give it enough texture to mature elegantly. This crop had a long, quiet growing season, which helped to create a rich, concentrated flavor that included wild berries, plums, licorice and mocha. The full-bodied and enveloping mouthfeel results in a long and delicate finish with intense fruit tones, dry herbs and cedar wood in a firm structure.
Discover Cabernet Sauvignon Wines
Cabernet Sauvignon is a red wine grape variety from the vitis vinifera grape plant species. It is the world's most commonly planted red wine grape variety, and its wines have lately been rated as the most sought-after in the world. When vinified properly, it may produce a full-bodied, complex, fruit-forward, and dry wine. The Cabernet Sauvignon grape owes most of its fame to its origins in the Bordeaux area of France. Traditionally, these wines have a strong crimson and black fruit flavor with a pronounced tannic component.
Because of its flavor profile and simplicity of production, Cabernet Sauvignon is a popular grape type among wine consumers and vintners both. The vines are very resilient, adapting to a wide range of temperatures and terroirs. They grow grapes with thick skins that are resistant to harsh conditions such as frost and hail.
Cabernet Sauvignon has large yields, which is a major plus for winemakers since it is one of the most popular red wines in the world.

History Louis Martini produced and sold wine during Prohibition for sacred and medicinal purposes through his company LM Martini Grape Products. When Wolsted's Law was repealed in 1933, Louis M. Martini Winery was founded and became one of the first five wineries established in Napa after Prohibition. In 1938, Martini expanded to Sonoma County with the Monte Rosso vineyard, named after the region's red volcanic soils. Luis M. Martini's long history in Napa Valley has given him a significant impact on the region's wine industry. In 1943, Martini helped found the Napa Valley Winemaking Association. His son, Louis P. Martini, was an innovator, helping to introduce techniques such as the use of wind turbines to prevent freezing, temperature-controlled fermentation, and individual batch selection. As part of its legacy, the Louis P. Martini Foundation for Viticulture and Wine Research was established at the University of California, Davis. In 2002, the winery was acquired by E. & J. Gallo.
