2009 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1157072 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard is a relatively immediate Marthas, with a real feeling of mid-palate density and weight that is almost out of character for this estate. Sweet, silky tannins give the 2009 much of its succulence. Scents of mint, pine and eucalyptus wrap around the juicy, inviting finish. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Shows notable herb, mint and bay leaf overtones, with a tight, dense core of dried currant and berry that is slow to open. This is very shut down for now, and should age for a long time. The flavors build on the finish. Drink now through 2027. (JL) Inner quote mark (6/2014)

K&L Notes

A legend in Napa Valley Cabernet since the first single-vineyard bottling in 1966, Martha's Vineyard in the Oakville appellation is now certified organic by CCOF. Heitz Cellar's tasting notes are written by the family and "extended family" in the winery office: "The enticing dark garnet color of this Cabernet softens and elongates as you tilt the wine glass to see the translucence of the hue on the edges. Its classic, clean mint aroma evokes a smile in recognition of an "old friend." On the palate, layers of complexity show an opulence of fruit, smoothly integrated with the core tannins of a slightly cooler growing season. This is a beautifully focused wine with textbook varietal character."

Classic. This is everything that it should be and more, it's Martha's. Lifted dark red fruits, a touch of earth, and nice spice accents. It is full bodied with darker fruits than the nose would suggest. Nice richness that is supported by good dusty tannins. A great finish that just goes and goes. It is so good you wouldn't mind getting run over by a mini van after tasting it.
