    Minty currant and cedary oak flavors precede a firm, dry, tannic Cabernet that is well-balanced with chewy cherry, plum and wild berry flavors. Best to decant an hour before serving.

    Dark chocolate, mint, dark fruit. Aged very well. Still bit tannic.

    Dark ruby red color. Black currant, licorice and some spices on the bouquet. On the palate it reveals some oak and well blended tannins as well as some earthy undertones. Medium to full bodied with a decent finish.

    Medium red colored wine with classic Marth's aromas of eucalyptus, soy, spearmint, and warm white pepper. A 94-point nose but the wine?s taste disappoints. A surprisingly short finish.

    Very big and smooth. Velvety feel in the mouth. A little pepper at the end. I never had this wine before so I don't know if it would have been better a year ago.

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.
