About Martha's Vineyard:
The magnificent story of Martha’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon began in 1965 and continues unfolding today. The historic handshake deal between the Heitz family and the May family, who own Martha’s Vineyard, made Cabernet Sauvignon history! The cherished relationship between the families now spans three generations.
In 1966, Joe Heitz produced a wine so distinctive and stunning that the two families boldly added the name of the vineyard to the label, introducing Martha’s Vineyard Cabernet as the first vineyard-designated wine in the Napa Valley.
95 Points - John Gilman:
"The 2009 Martha’s Vineyard from the Heitz family is one of the finest young vintages of this wine in recent times. Cathleen Heitz and her brother (and the estate’s winemaker since 1974) David Heitz rank this vintage right up there with the legendary Martha’s Vineyards, and it is easy to see why, as this is a wine of bottomless depth, great purity and focus and magical nascent complexity, all tied to the signature Martha’s personality that has made this such an iconic wine in Napa Valley for more than forty vintages. The bouquet is deep, pure and beautifully focused, as it wafts from the glass in a mix of red cherries, red plums, eucalyptus, woodsmoke, beautiful soil tones, a touch of allspice and a suave base of cedary wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and beautifully focused, with a rock solid core of fruit, ripe, perfectly integrated tannins and stunning length and grip on the ripe, but balanced finish. As has been the case for a couple of decades, the 2009 Martha’s Vineyard tips the scales at 14.5 percent alcohol, and the wine is certainly ripe, but it shows no signs out of the blocks of heat on the backend and I have little doubt that this wine will age beautifully."(8/2014)
93 Points - Vinous Media:
"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) (10/2015)
