The tasting room was the original Heitz winery, but they outgrew the building many years ago and converted it to a very pleasant and open tasting room.

Tastings are offered on a large farmhouse style table with friendly staff and tasting notes laid out on the table.

The wines offered were all cabernet, and two ports to finish. We were particularly impressed with the free tasting that included their top end Martha's Vineyard Cabernet.

      Best Wine - October, 2008

Very big, good fruit and excellent finish. Very impressive for a 20 year old California Cab.

      Best Wine - December, 2009

Very nice wine. Really smooth with nice fruit. Probably would not hold onto the wine too much longer but very impressed with it today

Smells more like a port than a Cabernet. Lots of chewiness and viscosity - smooth on the palate with a long finish. Will age well for many years. Not tasting like a "C", but should get there in time. Shame that the price includes $100 to pay for a holiday home in Martha's Vineyard - woul dbe great for under $50.

No up front fruit on this one, some structure, dry but a medium long finish. Should age well over time.
2004 Cabernet Sauvignon ($50)Rating: B-C

Nice round Cab, soft tannins and drinking well now. Might be worth decanting to see what other flavors come to the fore.
1999 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ($30)Rating: B

Not much fruit left, chewy with a slightly vegetable taste, with a balanced tannic finish. May have had storage problems.

Not a lot of fruit in their basic Cabernet. Nice finish with some dryness, but good back of mouth feeling to this one
