The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley spends 18 months in a combination of 30% new and 70% used French and American barrels. It is another big boy at 15.4% natural alcohol. This wine, which was not yet in bottle, is fabulous, and there are 42,000 cases of it. One of the strongest efforts yet from the Martinis, this cuvée still sells at a modest $38.00 – a fair price for something this compelling. The wine has an opaque purple color, a beautiful nose of blueberries, blackcurrants, licorice, camphor and graphite. The wine is full-bodied and multilayered on the palate with sensational richness and length. It should drink well for 20-25 years.

The Napa Valley is situated in the Northern Part of California and is known as the ultimate wine country. The majority of production of US wines comes from California, and the Napa Valley has over 500 wineries along this 30 mile long, picturesque valley. The climate, soil, and topography here are simply perfect conditions for the valley’s legendary Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Zinfandel wines. (Amongst many others!) Wines from the Napa Valley are often thought of as some of the finest in the world and Paul Hobbs’ offerings from are no exception.
