oakville, Napa Valley, United States
Martha's Vineyard sits perfectly situated on the well-drained soils of the Oakville appellation's western benchlands, receiving only the soft morning sun. This aspect, and the underlying terroir, provide a long cool growing season that helps the site produce wines of incredible depth, while maintaining the elegance and balance that has become synonymous with Heitz Cellar.
The 2014 vintage had a dry and cool growing season. The fruit expressed complexity early on, which helped capture the essence of the Heitz Cellar elegant style of winemaking. The 2014 harvest produced well-balanced fruit that boasted a superb depth and concentration that shines through now and will continue to develop for decades to come. The palate expresses a perfect balance of elegance and texture. The structure conveys a wine that could age for a century, but with the polished tannins and freshness that make it enjoyable today. It is a wine full of harmony and a unique, almost mysterious quality. Martha's Vineyard is a true Napa Valley icon.
100 Points, Wine Enthusiast
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.
