    Lots of earthy currant, anise, cedar, plum and tarry flavors are rich and concentrated. A muscular style that turns tight and tannic. 10,800 cases made.

    It needed 30 minutes to open up. The wine is lighter in body but the color is still good. Light fruit and oak. Over all a great value and age worthy.

    Rich chewy cab with big forward fruit and long finish. Shows why Heitz should be available for every steak.

    tannins are all gone, smooth mouthfeel, amazing clarity of fruit and oak, black fruits and leather.

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.
