Tech Sheet


Occasional Wine Note:  This is a historical wine that continues to represent Napa well. The 1970 vintage of this wine was selected for the famous Judgement of Paris that put Napa Valley on the map. Since then, this specific offering from Heitz continues to be a stalwart of the region. The 2017 version again does justice to the history of the wine, delivering great fruit, herbal notes, oaky nuance, and great tannin in a sily smooth drinking experience.

    The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard boasts gentle eucalyptus and vanilla shadings accenting bolder notes of cassis and black cherries. It's medium to full-bodied and firmly structured, aristocratic even, with a streamlined shape on the palate and a long, silky-textured finish.

    Critic Score: 94

    Delivers lovely mint and sweet bay leaf notes mixed with iris and hibiscus accents, before giving way to a sleek, fine-grained core built on gently mulled red currant and cherry fruit, along with worn cedar, savory and sanguine notes. Keeps nice tension at the core while showcasing a flirtatious edge.
