Louis M. Martini Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, California 

My Rating 82 Points.   

Price $15. 

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Nice fruity nose of blackberries, plums, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, earth, green vegetables, herbs, bell pepper, peppercorn and alcohol.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, tart cranberries, oak, light vanilla, bitter vegetables, tobacco, graphite, dark chocolates, spices, cloves and black pepper.

Medium finish with grippy tannins and tart raspberries.

A nice Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma County.
Still young, austere and unbalanced, though. I liked the nose better than the palate here.

Needs 2 years in the bottle to mature and smooth out. Better with food than just by itself. Right now, this is nothing special.

13.8% alcohol by volume.
