Heitz Napa Cabernet 1998
Varietal: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Appellation: Napa Valley --- Oakville Vineyard: Certified Organic by CCOF Residual Sugar: Dry Alcohol: 14.2% Release Date: February 1, 2003 Tasting Notes: The 1998 Martha’s Vineyard is easily identifiable with its pronounced mintiness, a unique characteristic of the vineyard. True to its pedigree, this is a rich, briary wine with layers of complexity. The flavors are bright and bold with a medium weight on the mid-palate and a delightful soft and lingering finish. The 1998 vintage shows signs of youthful tannins and tenacity, but the overall balance ensures a long- lived wine. Enjoy this solid Cabernet Sauvignon from Heitz Wine Cellars.
Rich flavor, slightly spicy, not too sweet nor too dry, not too acid
A bit on the jammy side -but a pleasant fruity aftertaste. Wine had nice legs and a fresh plum jammy smell.
full bodied, layered flavors of black cherry and tobacco
love it love it love it
Very interesting wine as not so into the Californian style. Fresh nose. Aromas on the plum side with red fruits and a touch of mint, with a nice structure and some good tanins. A real cabernet sauvignon! To drink now
