Heitz decided not to make any Martha's Vineyard or Trailside Vineyard designated wines in the 2011. Instead they put those grapes into their Napa Valley Cuvee and the Quality really shows. Gorgeous cassis and herbal eucalyptus notes. This goes to show that great Cabs were still produced in 2011.

Not their best. It's simply a product of a very cool vintage in Napa. It's soft and smooth but showing baked green bell pepper; which is not typical for Heitz in my experience. It's a drink now and over the next 3-5 years. Soft mid dark and light red fruits, sweet spice, star anise, sweet leather, burnt ambers and very soft sweet minerals & earth. Finishes lean but smooth. Green bell pepper fades after an hour in the decanter. Rating moves up to 8.8 or 8.9 after an hour decant.

Frrsh and vibrantly fragrant. Meadowy loveliness.

Lots of dark deep rich fruit with strong tannins. Needs time but I wanted a treat!!
