Louis Martini Monte Rosso Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
"Even more powerful, the dense plum/purple-tinged 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Monte Rosso Vineyard looks to be nearly as prodigious. It offers a big, sweet kiss of smoked herbs, burning embers, black currants, black cherries and licorice. Dense, full-bodied and unctuously textured as well as long, it, too, is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Monte Rosso Vineyard that was aged in a combination of new French oak (85%) and new American oak (15%) for 22 months prior to bottling. It should drink well for 20-30+ years."
