Heitz Cellar Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

$249.99

100 points                                                                      Rare release of an Napa Valley classic. Limited. The Heitz 2014 Martha’s Vineyard is a brilliant star, possessing incredible harmony and elegance. Limited. 100 Points 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." This Cabernet mirrors the near perfect growing conditions of the 2014 vintage. Connoisseurs will be most impressed with the impeccable balance from start to finish, and the sublime lushness that lingers on the palate. It accomplishes all this with exceptional sophistication and purity of varietal flavors.

Presented blind alongside two wines from Bordeaux and one other wine from Napa. All wines were opened eight hours prior to service, decanted and immediately returned to their respective bottles. The wine pours a deep ruby color with a translucent core. Medium+ viscosity. Medium+ intensity with a mix of red fruits, some tart dark fruits, eucalyptus, and holiday fruit cake. The nose alone already had me thinking Martha’s. On the palate, the wine is dry with developing vinosity. Confirming the red fruits and tart dark fruits along with a menthol note that seems to linger on the finish. Now I was certain this was Martha’s. Medium+ tannins and medium+ acid. The wine has a very attractive freshness to it. Called the 2014 Heitz Martha’s Vineyard. This is a baby with decades of life left.
