Heitz Cellar Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
Pure and concentrated, our Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon shares the unique beauty of its Napa Valley terroir with its lush varietal aroma. This is a well-integrated wine with a generous core of dark, rich fruit lightly embraced with mint. Layers of black cherry flavor unfold gracefully across the palate, building to a long, lovely finish. The incomparable Martha's Vineyard Cabernet is internationally acclaimed for its distinctive flavor and quality. Whether you choose to drink it today or cellar it for years to come, this is an unforgettable wine from a fabulous vintage!
There's much to admire in this young Martha's, though it lacks the accessibility of the 2005. The core mint-chocolate-covered cherry and berry flavors are tight and structured, true to the vintage, so it's best to cellar this one and see what happens. The wait is usually worth it. Best from 2013 through 2021. 2,708 cases made.
