Winemaker's Notes

(From 2000 Vintage) Louis Martini's Dry Sherry is in a class by itself. Produced from palomino grapes, its smooth, agreeable, nutty flavor and fine texture win awards in Sherry tastings year after year. Its uniqueness is in its origins. Specially developed on the Flor yeast, small batches of wine are aged in the sherry butts, and then a small amount from each year is blended to produce a high quality product in the bottle. The age of the Solera dates back to 1922 at the time Louis M. Martini started his original win...

    sharp at first, mellowed out after a few minutes. Plum flavors, nice after taste. Would buy again in the ten dollar range.

    (From 2000 Vintage) 19% Merlot. Far and away the preferred bottling over its lesser mates below, Martini's Napa Valley version is a medium-deep, well-defined Cabernet that presents attractive cherry and cassis themes with a helpful dollop of creamy oak. Its nicely measured tannins will support a bit of time in the cellar, and three or four years of age will find it at its peak.
