98 • Heitz 2005 Martha's Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville, Napa Valley $150. Certified Organic
Opaque garnet violet color. Intense and pure aromas and flavors of cassis, eucalyptus oil, olives, and toffeed nuts. Powerful and deep, this outstanding wine's flavor seems boundless, yet it displays a charm and elegance that is inviting, not ostentatious. Serve with filet mignon or elk steaks.

94 • Heitz 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley $60.
Aromas of spicy cassis-blueberry compote, candle wax, eucalyptus incense and delicate pink pepper follow through on a round, supple entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with excellent reserved depth and balance. Finishes with a nice pepper, pomegranate seed, and earth snap. A nice poised and reserved, old school styled Napa cab to serve with porterhouses. (tasted on Jul-19-2010)
90 • Heitz 2009 Grignolino Rosé, Napa Valley$18.50. Organically Grown Grapes
Pretty electric pink fuschia color. Effusive aromas of passionfruit, cherry jam and watermelon ice follow through on a robust entry to a fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body with very good depth and a hint of bubblegum dust. Finishes with a tart kumquat and guava finish. Very tasty and vibrant, without being too fruity sweet. (tasted on Apr-19-2010)
88 • Heitz 2008 Chardonnay, Napa Valley $20. Certified Organic|Find-a-Wine|
Pale golden straw color. Aromas of pineapple yogurt, vanilla toffee, kiwi, and spice with a round tangy dry-yet-fruity medium body and a lemon-lime curd, sour apple, and chalk finish. A solid table wine. (tasted on Oct-14-2010)
