Blending is key to creating the "La Bomba" Martellotto Cabernet which is fruit focused with balanced oak, integrated tannins, and moderate alcohol. The grapes were fermented in small lots and barreled down for fourteen months. The wine was lightly filtered, blended and bottled in the fall after harvest. Cabernet provides structure, black cherry fruit, and pepper flavors. Petite
Verdot adds blue fruits, baking spices and vanilla flavors. Malbec is a purple monster of inky color and roasted meats. Cabernet Franc bring an herbal component with oregano and thyme. "La Bomba" means "the bomb" in Italian, and this wine intends to make a statement when paired with any grilled or stewed meats or when served at your finest table. Enjoy this wine now until 2023 or beyond. Only 25 barrels made.
~Alla Salute!

Although there is a special place in my heart and belly for Italian wines, the wines of Bordeaux have been fueled my spirit animal since I started drinking wine as a young pup. The left bank wines of Pessac and Pauillac inspire me to make better wines every year.

Reviews

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon La Bomba (76% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc) sports a deeper ruby color as well as classic Cabernet notes of blackcurrants, tobacco leaf, chocolate, and earth. It's medium to full-bodied, has ripe tannin, a nicely balanced texture and a great finish. It’s impressive today but will keep for 10-15 years. ~91 points, Jeb Dunnuck
