2012 Heitz "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1295769 96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark 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. (WK) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (5/2017)

96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark 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. *Cellar Selection* (VB) Inner quote mark (7/2017)

Here we have a multi-layered wine, with its classic notes of cassis, along with berries and that Martha’s Vineyards’ famous Eucalyptus note. The sweet fruit is restrained and discreet; it intermingles perfectly with pleasant green notes and the perfectly ripened tannins. A truly multilayered, and complex wine that, although would be more than at ease with the Bordeaux greatest, it is a Napa Cabernet – In a class of its own.
