Heitz Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon Martha’s Vineyard 2015

$250.00

In one of Napa’s all-time classic vineyards, Heitz’s flagship Cabernet once again brings some sort of magic to the table that no one seems able to replicate. Decanter called the gorgeous 2015 bottling, “multidimensional”, “explosive” and “deliciously creamy” before taking it a few steps further. “There isn’t a more definitive Cabernet Sauvignon in the world, at any price”, they concluded.

Skipping ahead a vintage, Wine Spectator named the 2016 Heitz Martha’s Vineyard Cabernet their #3 Wine of the Year. That’s great, but that’s not out in the market yet and they gave the same score to the 2015, which was just recently released and is more than worthy of Top 10 praise. To me, it seems like this wine should’ve earned that spot.

98 Points from James Suckling, 97 more from Decanter Magazine. This full-throttled Cabernet Sauvignon will be drinking beautifully for a half-century. At $250/bottle – this is a true Napa Cab collectors item. Don’t miss this unique opportunity. I can guarantee it won’t come around again.

“No other Cabernet has the aromatic profile of Martha’s, its signature eucalyptus note being perennially present and well documented. It is quite floral for a Cabernet, with aromas of dried cherry blossom, fresh sage, dry earth and cocoa powder. Aged three years in French oak and an additional two in bottle before release, there is clear evidence of new oak, but in a deliciously creamy, enhancing way rarely found in modern Cabernet. The palate is juicy, clean, dark and deep all at once. Explosive and long on the finish, showing multidimensional layers of black fruits, fresh herbs and charred earth with stunning delineation. There isn’t a more definitive Cabernet Sauvignon in the world, at any price.” -Decanter Magazine

Expert Reviews

98 Points, James Suckling
Structured and powerful with chewy and firm tannins with a light vanilla and currant undertone. Full bodied. Juicy and savory. Luscious and intense yet polished. Tension, energy and wonderful length and brightness. Drinkable but needs another three to four years to come around.
