Tasting Note:

A really smart new addition to the lineup, the 2016 Lot C-91 parades beautifully polished bright bramble and cassis fruit alongside notes of fresh spearmint and crushed rocks. On the palate those bright blueberry notes collide with a sappy woody herb note and graphite finishing with a note of blood orange and iron. Produced only once before, by Joe Heitz, in 1969, the 2016 has been reimagined by Heitz winemaker Brittany Sherwood. The blend is based on the discovery, deep in a forgotten corner of the cellar, of the last few remaining bottles of the 1969 and Joe’s winemaking notes from the time. Conceived of as an elevated blended bottling and produced exclusively from Heitz’s top single vineyard sites, it contains over 30% Martha’s Vineyard fruit alongside grapes from Trailside, Linda Falls, Ink Grade and The Only One. It is released a year earlier than the single vineyard cuvees, and is designed to convey the brilliance of those sites, in an earlier drinking and more accessibly priced package.
