Sometimes you just have to get past your prejudices and appreciate what’s in the glass. So forget for a moment that “Louis Martini” is a name you may associate with pretty average value wines that’s now part of the Gallo winoplex. Just taste the 2010 Alexander Valley Cabernet without preconceptions. Appreciate the lush texture, opulent fruit, streak of iron, herb, licorice and dried flower and the long, lusty, finish. You’ll see right away why Wine Advocate rated it 91+ points and called it “a steal” at the $30 release price. And, you’ll appreciate even more that you can enjoy it tonight with steaks or roasted mushrooms and cellar it for a decade for just $22.98 or $19.98/ea for a case or two!
It's hard to find Chardonnay of this quality (WA 92 for the last 2 vintages, WS 90 so far for this one!), much less from $14.98 - the best price we can find in the USA!
Just what we love in Malbec - plenty of varietal fruit and spice with a juicy freshness that lets it work at table or just for sipping on the deck. Excellent value, too!
