Heitz Cellar Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
The 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.
Lightly 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.
