Heitz has been producing incredible single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Martha's Vineyard since 1966! The "Martha's Clone" is known for producing small berries with intense, concentrated flavors. The vineyard is known for creating aromas and flavors of mint, bay leaf, dark berry and chocolate notes yearly. When it comes to Cab from Martha's Vineyard, you know what you're gonna get, consistent, excellent wine!
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. VIRGINIE BOONE
