Heitz Cellar Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

$279

From Tom and Martha May's famous, organically farmed site in the heart of the appellation, this is a blockbuster vintage of the 100% varietal wine, immaculately structured and full of fresh acidity. The menthol is there, subtle, heightened by delicate, silky layerings of orange peel, red currant and cinnamon... Wine Enthusiast

This vineyard has been part of the Heitz estate since 1966, when an agreement was made with Tom May to source fruit from May’s small Oakville Vineyard, one of their three single vineyard 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged first for a year in neutral oak, then aged for 3 years in 100% new French Limousin oak. Deep Ruby with aromas of berry fruits and spice box with mint and eucalyptus notes. On the palate, currant and blackberry flavors with citrus, cinnamon and fig, well integrated, fresh acidity. Full-body, fine tight tannins, long finish, elegant, balanced ending with leather and earthy herb character. Let this age a bit! Outstanding! Tasting Sample!

Martha’s minty herbaceousness shine through once again in this epic vintage. Lean with a bright acidity, it tastes of aloe, eucalyptus, red currants, and raspberry liqueur.

Probably too good for a VP debate but so what. Interesting times.

Man what a lineup from Heitz. Not a stinker in the bunch.

Rich earth, subtle stewed fruit. Lighter body than I expected. Leafy nose—minty almost
