Louis M. Martini Winery

Michael Eddy

The Past and Future

Louis M. Martini Winery is a cornerstone of Napa Valley, offering an internationally acclaimed portfolio of Cabernet Sauvignon. Since 1933, the Martini family has played an integral role in establishing Napa Valley as one of the world’s premier wine regions, with each successive generation helping to set new standards in the vineyard and cellar. Today, our newly restored winery features an array of world-class tasting experiences, reflecting an enduring commitment to Cabernet Sauvignon crafted in Napa Valley.

Vineyards

When he first settled in Napa Valley, Louis M. Martini sought to source from the most coveted vineyards in the region. With the 1938 purchase of the Goldstein Ranch in the Mayacamas Mountains, he embarked on a new chapter in advanced viticulture and vineyard-driven winemaking. The vineyard renamed Monte Rosso for its red volcanic soils, has since become the emblematic source of some of our most sought-after releases. Today, we continue to source the best grapes from Napa Valley and beyond.

Current Wines- New Releases Due in February

sale price $19.99
Our 2020 Louis M. Martini Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant expression of Dry Creek and Alexander Valley. The vibrant nose boasts aromas of black currant and plum with subtle hints of vanilla. Layers of blackberry jam, black cherry and toasted vanilla on the palate are complemented by soft notes of cedar. Beautifully balanced, this wine offers an acidic structure that holds up nicely to the abundant fruit.

sale price $44.99
Mountain and benchland vineyards deliver a layered wine with structure, fruit intensity and finesse. Layers of vanilla and cassis are complemented by hints of cedar and a dusty finish on the palate. <br><br> The 2021 growing season marked a much-welcome return to ideal. Winter rains quenched the soil, setting the stage for dry weather the rest of the season. Over the summer, conditions stayed uneventful and mild, giving the grapes the luxury of hanging on the vine. Harvest began early, producing low yields of small berries with intense flavor concentration and optimal ripeness. <br><br> After early morning harvesting, the grapes were gently destemmed and put into upright tanks to cold soak for up to three days. To further extract flavor and varietal character, the wine was given pump-overs three times a day and kept on skins for 15 to 20 days of maceration time. The wine was then transferred to French (25% new) oak barrels for a period of 18 months.
