2014 Heitz Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard Napa Valley
Winemaker Notes: 2014 was another great year in Napa Valley and we see this quality reflected in our Martha’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose expresses the classic characteristics we love from this site; notes of bay leaf, mint, anise and dark chocolate are complimented by sweet black fruit, fresh red plum, and a touch of warm vanilla from our Limousin Oak aging program. Although 2014 was historically and earlier vintage, the microclimate of Martha’s Vineyard allowed the fruit to hang for the right amount of time on the vine to reach perfect phenolic ripeness.
Wine Enthusiast - "From the famous Oakville site, this aged wine spends three years in 100% new French oak, one in neutral oak and an additional year in bottle. Though it has had time to evolve, it has years to go to unfurl its core of eucalyptus, mint and cedar. It shows an unmistakable crispness of red fruit, orange peel and stone, all honed by a grippy, generous palate. Enjoy 2024– 2034."
Decanter - "Martha’s Vineyard is one of the most famous vineyards in the US, and the 2014 vintage from this hallowed site is as good as it gets for Napa Valley Cabernet. At every turn it exudes class, structure and a definitive air. Aromatically it commands you to pay attention; the palate will give you no choice. A thunderous wine in every dimension, giving off its classic mint and eucalyptus notes with perfectly harnessed power. The finish is a showstopper in its length and persistence. Tasted across five days, it was constantly on the ascent for the first two and a half, and perfectly enjoyable on the fourth. A true work of art."
Wine Spectator - "Intense for the piercing beam of raspberry and red currant coulis flavors, this is distinctive, offering racy star anise, sassafras, mint and rooibos tea accents. Very focused through the finish. Drink now through 2040."
