    It's the bread and butter of our business here at K&L: Napa Cabernet that tastes like classic Napa Cabernet for a price that represents quality without breaking the bank. Sound familiar? We get asked for recommendations like this more than 50 times a day, so personally it's always exciting when we find a great answer to that never-ending request. 2013 was a magical vintage for Napa and the proof is in the pudding here with this Louis Martini release, one that offers all the hallmarks of textbook California Cab: dark plummy fruit, dusty tannins, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and just enough oak on the finish. It's nothing new or revolutionary, mind you, it's just a workhorse of a wine that brings the bang for the buck. This is the type of wine that restaurants kill for because it's dependable, well-priced, and crowd-pleasing. If you're looking for a new house bottle, this is easily worth a case or two. True-to-form Cabernet of this quality (from this good of a vintage) rarely goes for less than $40 anymore.

    Deep, violet aromas of plum, blackcurrant, blackberry and blueberry. Soft and velvety on the palate supported by fresh, juicy tannins. A delicious and easygoing Napa Cabernet that will please everyone around the table for a great price.

    Classic Napa Valley Cabernet at an affordable price! Louis Martini, one of the five Napa wineries founded after Prohibition in 1933, has been making top notch Cabernet for many years. This 2013 Napa Valley offering will not disappoint. In the glass, this wine is an inky purple-red color with an aromatic nose of plum, fig, blackberry, espresso and earth elements. It's full-bodied with medium tannin, great balance and a long finish. Enjoy this now, or hold on to it for a few years and it will only get better!
