    Austere, with drying tannins and a dusty cedary edge. The red currant and spicy herbal flavors are fading underneath.--'76/'86 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now.

    he 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon Bella Oaks exhibits a medium garnet color with considerable amber at the edge. The wine is acidic, with tough tannin, and an intrusive, grainy, herbal quality to its lean, spicy, moderately-endowed flavors. A mediocre wine, it has quickly lost its fruit. This wine was less impressive than when I first tasted it.

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.
