100 Point Cab!

2014 Heitz Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard....$269.99
From the famous Oakville site, this aged wine spends three years in 100% new French oak, one in neutral oak and an additional year in bottle. Though it has had time to evolve, it has years to go to unfurl its core of eucalyptus, mint and cedar. It shows an unmistakable crispness of red fruit, orange peel and stone, all honed by a grippy, generous palate. Enjoy 2024–2034
Rated 100/100 The Wine Enthusiast
Intense for the piercing beam of raspberry and red currant coulis flavors, this is distinctive, offering racy star anise, sassafras, mint and rooibos tea accents. Very focused through the finish. Drink now through 2040. 2,617 cases made.
Rated 95/100 Wine Spectator
