K&L Notes

Martha's Vineyards has become one of the most well known Cabernets around the world for its unique mintiness, its rich layers of complexity and its remarkable overall balance. The 2005 growing season enjoyed almost perfect weather conditions throughout the Valley, resulting in a supremely delicious Cabernet that will only improve with age. From wine writer John Gilman: "The 2005 Martha’s Vineyard has an absolutely flamboyant nose that soars from the glass in a celestial blend of red and black cherries, mint, raw cocoa, woodsmoke, Rutherford Dust and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very, very pure, with a rock solid core of sappy fruit, beautiful complexity, a very generous attack, impeccable focus and balance and stunning length and grip on the ripely tannic and perfectly poised finish. This tastes as if it could be a young release of the 1975 or 1978, it is that classic in size and shape, despite it being at a higher alcohol level and having seen a touch more new wood during its elevage. A great Martha’s in the making. 2020-2070." (Celebrating Fifty Years of Napa Valley Excellence" The View from the Cellar, Heitz Wine Cellars 6/2011. pg 28.)

    If you want to drink one of the finest and most old-school styled Napa Cabs that is actually almost ready to drink, then get your hands on a very special and limited release Martha's Vineyard Cabernet for a special occasion. It never disappoints!

    Classic Martha’s Vineyard aromas and flavors come through this vintage. Still quite young, this wine is seamless and balanced with a fresh lively texture. Tannins are firm and this wine should really flesh out over the next 5-10 years. One for the cellar for sure!
