Louis Martini 2006 Lot 1 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Several important perspectives reach the palate when you sip on Louis Martini’s flagship wine, Lot 1: an appreciation for the perseverance of our pioneers when times were not always kind to small lot wines; an acknowledgment and appreciation for the melding, in its just unveiled renovation, of historic details with modern chic that puts the winery at the forefront of visitor experiences today; and – most of all – a taste of a wine that wraps a sturdy structural core of ageable tannins and acidity around rich, juicy fruits with oak spice and dried herb-fresh leather complexity. This 2006 is just starting to show its true beauty.

Lot 1 is on the short list of best wines of Napa Valley for a reason, and must reach any true wine lover’s lips for them to experience the diverse perspectives of Napa Valley’s wines.
