Winemaker Notes

Proof that good things come to those who wait, the 2013 Martha's Vineyard is a masterpiece of cabernet fruit aged in French oak at an incredibly slow pace. Hailed by many as the best vintage in decades, the 2013 growing season in Napa Valley was long, dry and sun-soaked. In the glass, this translates into a deep, rich color. Slowly swirling reveals layer upon layer of complexity and that distinctive Martha’s mint character reaffirms why this cabernet is so celebrated. On the palate, this is a wine of monumental proportions that is nonetheless elegant. Explosions of dark fruit flavor are beautifully balanced with silky tannins. This has all the hallmarks of being one of the great vintages to come from this historic vineyard. It is ready to be enjoyed now and will thrive with proper cellaring for many years of pleasure.

About Winery

Family owned since its founding in 1961, Heitz Cellar’s legacy runs as deep as the roots throughout the Napa Valley; a winery legend that has helped shape the history of Napa Valley winemaking. In the late 1950’s, pioneering vintner Joe Heitz ushered in Napa’s modern era with his iconic, globally celebrated wines, including Napa Valley’s first vineyard-designated Cabernet Sauvignon, the renowned Heitz Cellar Martha’s Vineyard. Fifty-eight years of the Heitz family’s dedication to viticulture, stewardship, and classic winemaking, maintained the winery’s notoriety as a benchmark amongst its peers in California and Europe.

In April, 2018, Heitz Cellar entered an exciting new chapter as this rich legacy was passed into the hands of the Lawrence family, whose deep roots in agriculture and commitment to the same core values of fine winemaking made it a perfect match. The wines are made with an unwavering commitment to quality from organically farmed, 100% Napa Valley fruit, and a commitment to the sustainability of Napa Valley.

Wine Enthusiast, 96 pts

"From Tom and Martha May's famous, organically farmed site in the heart of the appellation, this is a blockbuster vintage of the 100% varietal wine, immaculately structured and full of fresh acidity. The menthol is there, subtle, heightened by delicate, silky layerings of orange peel, red currant and cinnamon. Drink 2023–2033."

 

James Suckling, 95 pts

"The blackcurrants and blackberries with lavender and rosemary really pop out of the glass. Full body, tight and polished tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Shows tension and focus with a precise finish. Very finely textured. A classical wine. From organically grown grapes. Try in 2021 and onwards."
