2010 Heitz Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon

5/23/2015 - Randito Likes this wine: 91 points

Nice blueberry and violet nose. Black and red currant, cranberry jam with hint of mineral and copious amount of charcoal oak. This cab is thin and medium body, but very enjoyable cab. Decant this for 2 hrs to open it up to its potential. Once opened up it revealed some power and layered black fruits and black licorice.

Tasted blind against 2011 Grgich Cab, which I already tasted and loved. Easily id'ed both wines (guess I had a 50:50 chance of being right!). The MV had that special bouquet that was more vegetal/eucalypsis but none of the cedar that I really like with Heitz cabs. The Grgich was also outstanding.
The Heitz continued to show well for days. Even not horrible after 2 weeks.
But must try to save my last bottle until at least 2019!

Still some greenness on the nose of this bottle. Bell pepper, dry earth, background herbaceous notes and mustiness. A green tinge to the front of the palate, followed by dark fruit and earth, and then white and black pepper. A solid but not spectacular showing. Paired well with black truffle dish.

Cassis, blackberry and mint on the nose; blackberry, purple fruit and tobacco on the palate. Medium-long, soft finish. No tannins to speak of, but still some pucker on the back-end. Hits all the right notes.

Wonderful wine with good time left. COS65 notes are spot on. This has a savory quality too it, with smoked wood, bay leaf, anise, dark blue and black fruits and wonderful tannins on a long finish. No fruit bomb here.

Some at the table thought it was corked but I felt more cellar stank. I'm pretty sensitive to cork for what it's worth. Started with the telltale mint but that didn't last all night. Smooth cab flavors indicative of the Heitz style meaning not overdone. That being said this wine wasn't particularly intense or ethereal. Still I'd certainly drink this if offered.

2001 Heitz Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon Bella Oaks

Rutherford more

5/9/2015 - Xavier Auerbach wrote: 92 points

A private lunch (Restaurant De Lindenhof **, Giethoorn, Netherlands): Rich colour but not extremely deep, very youthful, no browning at the edges; deep and cedary nose, spice and crushed red berry fruit, slightly dusty, warm earth; the palate is rich but restrained, fresh and structured, dry but juicy, like a rich but old-fashioned Saint-Julien, ripe tannins still provide lovely grip; wonderful sweet fruit on the convincing finish, hint of herbs, very good length. A Californian classic.

Deep purple color. Extracted, dark fruit and earthy nose. A full-bodied and powerful wine with great depth. This wine requires a few more years, good potential.

1986 Heitz Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley more

5/6/2015 - Derek Darth Taster wrote: 93 points

Back Vintage Wine Night (Extra Space): Pop and poured. Drank over 2 hours.
Appearance is clear, medium intensity, garnet colour. Legs.
Nose is clean, medium+ intensity, with aromas of capsicums, tobacco, tea leaves, earth, and sweet red and black cherries. Developed.
On the palate, dry, medium acidity, medium alcohol, silky smooth medium- tannins, medium+ body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of capsicums, tobacco, tea leaves, earth, sweet red and black cherries, red plums. Long finish.
Very good quality. Over the course of the 2 hours, the capsicums and tea leaves initially were more prominent, receding at the 1 hour mark, allowing the sweet fruit to exhibit itself. By 2 hours, the fruit was fading already and capsicums dominated. Nearing the end of its life and long run. Drink up.
The 1986 Heitz Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon Bella Oaks I drank last year was much better. This bottle had no vineyard indication on the label.

1997 Heitz Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard

5/2/2015 - Furmint Likes this wine: 93 points

This was one of the larger and plusher Martha's of the night. It had much less complexity on the nose than any of the 80s or 70s bottles with aromas of cherry, plum, cedar, mocha and earth spice but very little signature Marthas mint.
Waves of red and blue fruit on the palate with some nice fine tannins and mocha flavors as a nice backdrop to the fruit and nicely developing secondary notes of cedar and tobacco a bit of mint and sage.
This is a hedonistic//riper Martha's but we agreed this won't age gracefully for 40 years like the 76 we drank in the flight due to its ripe nature, less structure, and less acid. I plan to drink my half case up over the next decade but save one for the 2030s to see if that is right!

Not as good as the outstanding 2001 yet. The 2002 needs another 5-10 years. But it could become one of the best HM ever. It has the power and elegance for an ultra long run.

Deep crimson. Dusty, minty nose with hints of currants. Silky mouthfeel. Fully mature with top notes of mint, tobacco, earth and cedar. Not a lot of fruitiness in this bottle, but a lovely bottle. Balanced and elegant. Time to drink.

Tasted at the winery. Taking a chance on this one, though only 100$. Did NOT really get the special Martha's vibe with this tasting. No cedar. Wait a little longer maybe.

Weird. This bottle was tight and almost seemed like it might be corked. So strange. Nothing like the bottle from 3 years ago that had soft tannins.
