One of the best values in Cabernet Sauvignon anywhere in the world remains Louis Martinis Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County (89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot and the rest Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc and other varieties) is just a beautiful wine. Dense ruby/purple with classic tobacco leaf, blackcurrant, loamy soil notes and a touch of wood spice, this wine has relatively modest alcohol for Cabernets these days (13.5%), and whats even more remarkable is that there are 408,000 cases. The wine has the suppleness and upfront charm to be drunk now, but dont discount the ability of this wine to hold onto life and last, without losing its fruit, for another 7-10+ years. It is a great value.
