This vineyard has been part of the Heitz estate since 1966, when an agreement was made with Tom May to source fruit from May’s small Oakville Vineyard, one of their three single vineyard 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged first for a year in neutral oak, then aged for 3 years in 100% new French Limousin oak. Deep Ruby with aromas of berry fruits and spice box with mint and eucalyptus notes. On the palate, currant and blackberry flavors with citrus, cinnamon and fig, well integrated, fresh acidity. Full-body, fine tight tannins, long finish, elegant, balanced ending with leather and earthy herb character. Let this age a bit! Outstanding! Tasting Sample!

Full bright ruby. Sexy if somewhat funky aromas of cassis, black cherry, leather, mint and eucalyptus, lifted by a note of black pepper. Deep and vinous, with its dark berry and mint flavors joined by slightly rustic pepper and leather notes. More savory than sweet; not squeaky-clean but has the energy to support slow evolution in bottle. Finishes with rather suave tannins that turn a bit dusty with air, perhaps due to the wine's savory herbal element. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, July 2019)

Expressive aromatics and plush red fruit, hints of tobacco, structured tannins and an overall amazing drinking experience are just some of the notes I have recorded on this 2004 vintage 15 years after being harvested.

I found this to be in a very nice place. Deep fruits, mint, hints of flowers dancing on top. Some of the tertiary flavors of fennel, leather and a touch of sage wove their way through on the length finish.

Very complete and plummy. Spearmint and a fennel seed and white pepper palate. Fresh still. Very good.

Translucent and pretty resolved cherry flavors with menthol. Gorgeously light and focused. Excellent
