Top 10 wines in the US press

27th June, 2013 by Andy Young

Louis M. Martini, Sonoma County, Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Louis M Martini Cabernet SauvignonRebecca Murphy was another US wine writer who this week recommended a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Murphy wrote in the Dallas Morning News: “With so many wines available these days, it’s easy to forget about the reliable wines that have been around for a while. A perfect example is this Cabernet Sauvignon from Louis M. Martini. It has plenty of plush black cherry, blueberry and blackberry fruit with hints of toast and vanilla. It’s round and plump in the mouth, with enough savoury acidity to keep your mouth watering. It finishes with burnished tannins. Keep it around for your favourite burger or red meat from the grill.

She added: “The Napa Valley winery will celebrate its 80th anniversary in September. It was established by Louis M. Martini; today the wines are made by his grandson Michael. The winery was sold to Gallo several years ago, a move that provided more resources for the family and for the winery. At the time of the sale, Michael said the change gave him the freedom to make wines in his style and more tools to do it with.”
