Notes From The Winemaker:

Located at the base of the Mayacamas mountains, Martha’s Vineyard’s gradual slope to the valley floor provides us with exquisite well-drained soil. The small yield in 2015 resulted in a wine of exceptional concentration in aromatics and structure that attests to the pedigree and acclaim for which this vineyard is renowned. We are honored to release another stunning vintage from one of the most prized vineyards in the Napa Valley.

Tasting Notes:
A very inviting wine with rich aromas of boysenberry, cassis and mint all tightly woven around a sweet core. On the palate this Cabernet is firm with rich, savory notes of cigar box and chocolate, culminating in a silky finish. A compelling and flavorful wine.

Ratings & Reviews

96 Points - Vinous Media:
"So much of its appeal is in its tightly-coiled energy and tension. Cherry pit, smoke, blood orange, mint and spice open up with time in the glass, but the 2010 is clearly built for cellaring. The wine's brightness and focus are compelling, but the 2010 needs time." (AG) (10/2015)

95 Points - James Suckling:
"Violets and blue fruits. Thai mint and basil. Full-bodied, very tight and long. Tangy and beautiful. Tight and fresh acidity. Beautiful and so drinkable. From organic grapes. Drink now or hold." (5/2017)

95 Points - Decanter Magazine:
"One of Napa Valley's classics, Martha's Vineyard is a legendary site in west Oakville at the foot of the Mayacamas Mountains. Heitz's 2010 rendition opens up with fragrant black fruit, mint chocolate and rich soil tones, revealing supple, layered tannins and bright acidity on the palate. Like all the Heitz wines, this is unmistakably fresh and savoury. Drink 2020-2050." (WK) (6/2016)

94 Points & Cellar Selection - Wine Enthusiast:
"The mighty Martha's spends three-and-a-half years aging in French Limousin oak barrels. It has years to go, its structure so expertly captured in the bottle, yet still willing to impart a lightness of sage and sarsaparilla, the tannins firm and integrated, with slight hints of cigar, coconut and that ever-famous mint. Drink now through 2025." - Virginie Boone (11/1/2016)
