Louis M Martini Monte Rosso Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

For more than 85 years, the Louis M. Martini Winery has crafted world-class Cabernet Sauvignon from the exceptional vineyards of Napa and Sonoma counties using the simple, honest premise that the best grapes make the best wines. Today, this legacy continues at their historic winery in the Napa Valley with an acclaimed collection of unforgettable Cabernet Sauvignon wines. The jewel in the crown of their vineyards is the iconic Monte Rosso vineyard, from where this wine hails. A muscular wine, the palate offers dark cherry, earth and classic Monte Rosso spice overlaid with raspberry, blackberry, fig and hints of dark chocolate and coffee. The acidity and body are balanced perfectly balanced and the finish is long and graceful.

Louis M Martini Monte Rosso Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The Monte Rosso Vineyard rolls across steep, rugged terrain in the
majestic Mayacamas Mountains nearly 1,300 feet above the Sonoma
Valley. Owned by the Louis M. Martini Winery since 1938, it is named for
its rich, red volcanic soils and has produced award-winning wines for
three generations. The vineyard’s mix of high altitude, position above the
fog line, low-yielding vines and ideal western exposure produces wines
with a unique sense of terroir. Monte Rosso is one of California’s most
prized locations for wine grapes.
The 2016 growing season on Monte Rosso’s mountaintop was another in
a string of warm, dry and steady seasons with no weather events
impacting quality or yield. Consistently moderate temperatures
throughout the spring and summer allowed grapes to ripen fully and
evenly, leading to near-ideal harvest conditions. This allowed us to pick
every block at optimum ripeness, resulting in concentrated fruit of
particularly high quality, rich flavors and layers of complexity.
Select Cabernet Sauvignon blocks were carefully hand harvested and
hand sorted, then gravity fed into small, open top fermenters for cold
soak of up to five days. After fermentation, the wine was racked by
gravity into oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and aging. The
blocks were aged separately for months before the final blend was
assembled and sent back to barrel for more aging. The wine was barrel
aged for 26 months in a combination of French oak barrels, 75% new,
and American oak barrels, 19% new.
Aroma Profile: Fine-grained tannins and Monte Rosso’s hallmark hints of
cinnamon and clove spice make their presence known on the exceptionally
long, earthy finish.
Tasting Profile: The wine opens with generous aromas of blueberry, vanilla and
black licorice. Notes of black cherry, cassis, cedar and soft leather are
highlighted on the deeply layered palate.
