2013 Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon  (Sonoma County) 88

90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Sirah produce a medium bodied, fresh, spicy, cherry oriented, soft textured wine that will be best tasted on the young side. 88 Points

2012 Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon Lot No. 1  (Napa Valley) 93

Fat, lush, sweet, ripe, juicy dark fruits feel great on your palate. The polished wine has all the right stuff in abundance. This is already drinking well. 93 Points

1997 Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon Monte Rosso Vineyard  (Sonoma Valley) 91

A surprise for me as I never encounter young vintages from this producer. Loads of earth, tobacco and cigar box aromas mesh perfectly with the sweet, fresh cherries and soft textured finish. This is probably fully mature, but there is no big hurry to pop a cork, as well as any reason to age this any longer. 91 Points

1969 Louis M. Martini Zinfandel Private Reserve California Mountain  (Napa Valley) 90

Absolutely mind boggling to me that a Zinfandel could still be going strong at close to 45 years of age! This bottle was perfectly stored, which helped. But still, a Zin with 4 decades of age! The wine offered interesting aromatics, good concentration and a nice peppery, spicy, fruit filled finish. Bravo!!! 90 Points

1968 Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon  (Napa Valley) 86

Pretty wine, but very light in color and in fruit. The red berries are sweet, and there is freshness, but it's quite light and short. 86 Points

More like a Pinot Noir than Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine is light, sweet, fresh, crisp and clean, with a really fine cherry note on the palate and finish, there is not much depth of flavor here. 87 Points

1964 Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon  (Napa Valley) 80

1964 Louis Martini Cabernet Sauvignon was not showing as well as previous bottles. Shrill, bright and acidic, with a cranberry dominated personality, drink up. 80 Points

1958 Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection  (Napa Valley) 83

Clearly fading, but at over 60 years of age, this was still holding on to some red fruits. Very light, short, crisp and direct, the wine is beginning to take on a maderized character, so if you have a bottle, drink up. 83 Points

1957 Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon  (California) 85

Austere, but with a hint of aged charm, cassis, truffle and tobacco, this light bodied wine was a fun, albiet short time machine. 85 Points
