About Heitz 2012 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. Decanter scored this 96 points saying "The just-released vintage of Martha's Vineyard is another youthful classic from Heitz, bursting with notes of black cherry, mint chocolate, cigar box and spice. On the palate the wine is ample, concentrated and fresh, with more intensity and drive than many of the supple wines this easygoing vintage produced. Its inherent complexity needs time to unfurl. Drinking Window 2020 - 2040." James Suckling scored it 96 as well and said " Intense aromas of mint, eucalyptus, dark berries, currants and redwood. Citrus peel to boot. Full-bodied, layered and very pretty with silky tannins and a juicy finish. Tight and subtle. Retro cool. From organically grown grapes. Beautiful now to drink." and Wine Enthusiast Magazine also scored it 96 and made it a "Cellar Selection" saying " This tremendous 100% varietal wine hails from Oakville and was aged over three years in oak. Juicy red-cherry fruit and a compelling hint of caramel greet the palate, framed by elegant, fine tannins and a subtle minty tone in the background. Balanced and rewarding from start to finish, it has years ahead of it to develop further nuance. Enjoy 2022–2030."
