HEITZ CABERNET SAUVIGNON, MARTHA'S VINEYARD, OAKVILLE NAPA VALLEY 2010

Vinous

96 Points

Not surprisingly, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard is the least expressive of these wines. At the same time, so much of its appeal is in its tightly-coiled energy and tension. Cherry pit, smoke, blood orange, mint and spice open up with time in the glass, but the 2010 is clearly built for cellaring. The wine's brightness and focus are compelling, but the 2010 needs time.

Cellar Selection

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. Virginie Boone

NVWE Notes: This great Cab is a throwback to the Heitz wines of the 1960s and ‘70s. The nose offers a classic Martha’s aromatic profile, with scents of dried Michigan cherry, red cherry jam, red currant, Cassis, tobacco, baking spices and the signature mint-eucalyptus suggestions. It is deep and gutsy on the palate, with firm tannins and great concentration to focused, big-scale fruit. The finish is a delicious and lingering replication of the mid-palate flavors, with syrupy red cherry and red currant at center stage, supported by candied orange peel, star anise, caramel and tobacco, above dusty-cedry and mint-eucalyptus accents. Boldly rich from start to finish its is ten years from its full maturity. 2254 cases produced.
