About Heitz 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, Martha's Vineyard, Napa Valley

Heitz Martha's Vineyard is an iconic Napa Valley wine. The first vineyard-designated Napa Cab, sourced from Heitz' estate vineyard in Oakville (now certified organic by the CCOF). 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 3-1/2 years in American oak tanks and 2-1/2 years in French oak barrels.

Wine Enthusiast Magazine designated this a Cellar Selection and scored it 94 points saying "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."

Decanter Magazine scored it 95 points saying "One of Napa Valley's classics, Martha's Vineyard is a legendary site in west Oakville at the foot of the Mayacamas Mountains. Heitz's 2010 rendition opens up with fragrant black fruit, mint chocolate and rich soil tones, revealing supple, layered tannins and bright acidity on the palate. Like all the Heitz wines, this is unmistakably fresh and savoury."

James Suckling also scored it 95 and said "Violets and blue fruits. Thai mint and basil. Full-bodied, very tight and long. Tangy and beautiful. Tight and fresh acidity. Beautiful and so drinkable. From organic grapes. Drink now or hold."

and Vinous scored it 96 points saying "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." This review is from four years ago in 2015, so now we're seeing this wine truly emerge into lush drinkability!
