K&L Notes

A legend in Napa Valley Cabernet since the first single-vineyard bottling in 1966, Martha's Vineyard in the Oakville appellation is now certified organic by CCOF. Heitz Cellar's tasting notes are written by the family and "extended family" in the winery office: "The enticing dark garnet color of this Cabernet softens and elongates as you tilt the wine glass to see the translucence of the hue on the edges. Its classic, clean mint aroma evokes a smile in recognition of an "old friend." On the palate, layers of complexity show an opulence of fruit, smoothly integrated with the core tannins of a slightly cooler growing season. This is a beautifully focused wine with textbook varietal character."

    Classic. This is everything that it should be and more, it's Martha's. Lifted dark red fruits, a touch of earth, and nice spice accents. It is full bodied with darker fruits than the nose would suggest. Nice richness that is supported by good dusty tannins. A great finish that just goes and goes. It is so good you wouldn't mind getting run over by a mini van after tasting it.
