  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

    One of the ripest, richest Martha's Vineyard Cabernets, this wine is aging marvelously as the tannin has become less noticeable and the fruit more dominant. It reveals a deep, saturated, plum/purple color, and a huge, tell-tale, mint, cassis, and vanillin bouquet with vague earth and licorice notes. Exceptionally full-bodied, powerful, and chewy, with sensational extract, this concentrated 1976 has begun to strut its stuff.

    Shows a healthy red garnet color. Strong aromas of mint and eucalyptus, with notes of dried red currant and earth, end up on the dry side, with a gritty edge. Yet this is deeply concentrated, and the flavors are focused, deep and persistent. A classy old Cabernet.

  • Heitz Wine Cellars is located in Spring Valley, in the eastern hills of St. Helena. In 1964, Joe and Alice Heitz acquired this 160-acre ranch and winery to accommodate their burgeoning family business.

    Heitz Wine Cellars has earned countless accolades for its dazzling wines every year since 1961. Their three renowned vineyard-designated wines --- Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Trailside Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Bella Oaks Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon --- are the highlight of the winery's distinguished resume.

    Heitz' remarkable Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has been a collector's favorite for over 40 years. Wine Spectator underscored this wine's legendary status by selecting Martha's Vineyard Cabernet as one of the Top 12 wines of the 20th Century.
