Heitz Cellar Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

SKU 5534


A great success in a challenging year, this wine is a true testament to the vitality of Martha's Vineyard itself. A very inviting wine with rich aromas of boysenberry, cassis and mint all tightly woven around a sweet core. On the palate this Cabernet is firm with rich, savory notes of cigar box and chocolate, culminating in a silky finish. A compelling and flavorful wine. As always, this release will reward patient cellaring.

Wine EnthusiastThe mighty Martha's spends three-and-a-half years aging in French Limousin oak barrels. It has years to go, its structure so expertly captured in the bottle, yet still willing to impart a lightness of sage and sarsaparilla, the tannins firm and integrated, with slight hints of cigar, coconut and that ever-famous mint. Drink now through 2025.

Wine SpectatorLightly aromatic, with savory herb and bay leaf flavors, this is sleek and texturally elegant, presenting an appealing if modest array of mint- and mocha-scented currant. The tannins are supple and easygoing, making this easy to enjoy now. Drink now through 2025. 2,154 cases made.
