  • Rating: 94

    Powerful and concentrated, yet with rounded edges that display the depth and finesse that is apparent in this beautifully crafted wine. Minty and chocolatey, it's a fine example of what Martha's has to offer.

    Dark scarlett red color, just bit of bricking at rim. looks relatively youthful actually. Initially bouquet of truffles, leather, herbs and dark chocolate. Over time sour cherries and cedar emerges, band aids (bit of Bret). Complex nose. Palate is still quite fresh, with good acid and more tannins than I would expect with a 31 year old wine. Tannins will likely outlast the fruit. Finish is very long. Sweet fruit and tannic finish. Probably good for more years although the tannin will likely live on as the fruit fades, ruining the balance.

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.
