The lush opulence that you have come to expect of vintage 2004 Napa Valley Cabernets is finally ready for release at Heitz Cellars! The regal purple of 2004 Martha's Vineyard Cabernet in the glass is the perfect introduction to this exceptional vintage.
Lavish varietal aromas and a signature twist of mint are followed by an exquisite mouthful of rich black cherry. This is Cabernet Sauvignon at its finest, produced with sun-ripened fruit from the legendary Martha's Vineyard. During our extended aging process, beautifully integrated French oak adds an appealing note of toasted vanilla.
This skillfully balanced Cabernet displays the elegant complexity of its noble heritage as it builds to a long, lovely finish --- impressive to drink now and certain to age gracefully.
Shows hints of maturity, with chocolate mint, cherry and currant flavors that are intense yet elegant, balanced and stylish. Full-bodied, firm and focused, this is complex and concentrated without being heavy, offering the wine's classic style and personality. Drink now through 2018.
