1974 Heitz Cellar Martha's Vineyard Cabernet - 98 pts!
Family owned since its founding in 1961, Heitz Cellar’s legacy runs as deep as the roots throughout the Napa Valley; a winery legend that has helped shape the history of Napa Valley winemaking. In the late 1950’s, pioneering vintner Joe Heitz ushered in Napa’s modern era with his iconic, globally celebrated wines, including Napa Valley’s first vineyard-designated Cabernet Sauvignon, the renowned Heitz Cellar Martha’s Vineyard. Fifty-eight years of the Heitz family’s dedication to viticulture, stewardship, and classic winemaking, maintained the winery’s notoriety as a benchmark amongst its peers in California and Europe.

In April, 2018, Heitz Cellar entered an exciting new chapter as this rich legacy was passed into the hands of the Lawrence family, whose deep roots in agriculture and commitment to the same core values of fine winemaking made it a perfect match. The wines are made with an unwavering commitment to quality from organically farmed, 100% Napa Valley fruit, and a commitment to the sustainability of Napa Valley.

Rating RP98 - I had this wine twice over a period of thirty days rating it an astounding 99 and 98 points. A monumental California Cabernet Sauvignon it appears to have approached its plateau of maturity but should easily last for 20-25 more years. There is no rust amber or brown to the saturated dark purple color. The spectacular huge Mouton-Rothschild-like nose of mint cassis lead pencil and toast is remarkably youthful. Staggeringly concentrated this full-bodied super-rich wine possesses moderate tannin fresh lively acidity and a blockbuster rich fleshy finish. This is a monumental effort! RP
