"Owner and winemaker Denis Barraud ferments the wine in stainless steel and ages it in older oak. In 2009 the wine is pure fruit, with oodles of black cherry and black currant along with hints of earth and underbrush. With attractive, plump texture, as one would expect in this vintage, low acidity and impressive purity, this is a great value. Drink it over the next 1-3 years."-Wine Advocate
"Martini's Cabernets are consistently well made and well priced and this one didn't disappoint. Fresh red plum and blackberry jam aromas and flavors are supported by caramelized and toasted oak notes. The round, full mouthfeel has just enough structure to lead into a fruit focused finish."-Wine Review Online
"Aromas of chocolate covered espresso bean and dried currant with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tangy, sour cherry and honey roasted nut and a chewy tannin finish. Nice smoothness and balance; will be very flexible at the table."-Beverage Tasting Institute
