However, this estate does some stunning work in Napa as evidenced by one of the great values in Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa. Made from 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and the rest Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot, this stunning wine can undoubtedly be found discounted to under $25 a bottle. Moreover, there are nearly 66,000 cases produced, so it one of the few outstanding Napa Cabernets that also has tremendous availability. Its dense plum/garnet color is followed by a stunning perfume of black currants, loamy soil, blackberries and smoke. The wine cuts a full-bodied swath across the palate and possesses silky tannins, layers of fruit and a beautiful, opulent, round mouthfeel. It should drink nicely for 10-15 years. Readers may remember that I gave the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 90 points, and the 2007 is even better!

The Louis M. Martini Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a deep garnet color with intense aromas of ripe cherry, cassis, and pipe tobacco. Concentrated flavors of ripe plums, and dark bing cherries marry perfectly with the oak nuances. This is a well structured wine that is balanced with firm, velvety tannins which culminate in a long, elegant finish with hints of tobacco, dried herbs and fruit. This wine is ready to enjoy now or can be aged for 3-5 years.
Wine maker notes
The 2006 Louis M. Martini Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon delivers the highest quality from premium Napa Valley vineyards. The wine grapes were picked in the early morning hours to keep the fruit as cool as possible prior to fermentation. The grapes were then destemmed, but not crushed, leaving over 90% whole berries in the stainless steel upright fermenters. Once the must was inoculated with the Prise De Mousse yeast strain, it fermented in temperatures controlled between 76°F - 85°F and received extended skin contact for up to 21 days for maximum extraction. After primary fermentation was completed, the wine underwent secondary, or malolactic, fermentation. The wine was racked every three to four months, and pad and sterile filtered prior to bottling.

The Napa Valley Viticultural Area is renowned for its long growing season marked by sunny, warm and dry days followed by cool evenings. These growing conditions are ideal for allowing grapes to ripen slowly and evenly. Despite inclement weather conditions, the 2006 harvest was marked as an exceptional vintage. Winter began with extreme rainfall causing flooding in much of Napa Valley. The rain continued into early spring and the cool, wet weather delayed bud break by a few weeks. However, the sun came out in early June allowing the vines to bloom and set fruit. A 10-day streak of record heat in July helped catch the vines up to a “normal” place in the growing season. The return of cooler weather in fall allowed for moderately paced and deliberate ripening, ideal for developing premium grapes with good complexity, acidity and flavor.

For more than 75 years, the Martini family winemakers have crafted world-class Cabernet Sauvignon wines from the exceptional vineyards of Sonoma and Napa counties. Louis M. Martini embodied a simple, honest premise: The best grapes make the best wines. Today, Michael Martini, third-generation winemaker carries on this tradition at the historic winery in Napa Valley with his range of unforgettable Cabernet Sauvignon wines.
