2006 Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County: Greg liked it, Victoria not so much.


june 3, 2009: we had this with chicago-style seasoned pork loins and fresh broccoli. greg likes it. the nose is slightly tannic and cherry. he can taste the tannins, the flavor is low acidity, some cherry, very smooth, it's drinkable. victoria thinks it's got a warmly cherry nose, with slight alcohol vapors. it has tannins and acidity without being particularly distinctive; as far as the finish, it's all at once, like the final exclamation of a street firecracker, without the long-term definition, color and style that comes from a far more precise production. she was happy to try the sonoma valley since we really enjoyed the napa valley version from the same vineyard. 13.9 alcohol. $12.59 with a 10-percent big red liquors case discount.
