We selected the grapes for this vintage from some of the best sites in Napa Valley, including Stagecoach Vineyard and vineyards in Oakville, Stags Leap, Coombsville and on the Silverado Bench. The 2015 season was warm and dry, and one of the earliest we've seen. It started with warm temperatures in late winter and spring that led to an early bud break. A cool May during bloom created a smaller than average crop, then mild weather through spring, summer and harvest allowed slow, even ripening that built full ripeness and complexity. The result was grapes with intense aromatics, concentrated ripe fruit flavors and outstanding structure and balance.

Broad-shouldered and dense, with very ripe waves of raspberry, plum and boysenberry reduction flavors coursing through, inlaid with singed vanilla, apple wood and sweet tobacco accents. Cuts a wide swath through the finish, with the fruit powering through in unison with the toast and a tug of loam. A big 'un. Best from 2020 through 2030. 813 cases made.

This is a thick, concentrated expression of the grape that shows undeniable power and intensity. Crayon wax, cedar, black currant, black pepper and shapely tannins define its rich core. This can stand some time in the cellar; drink 2025-2030.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Lot. 1 is Louis Martini's top Cabernet bottling. Ripe and yet also light on its feet for such a rich wine, the 2015 possesses terrific aromatic intensity that give lift as well as energy. Blueberry jam, new leather, spice, licorice, menthol and dried flowers all run through this super-expressive, resonant Cabernet Sauvignon. There is plenty to like.
