Heitz Cellar Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 1975
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
The 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard is quite pretty and powerful, but also a bit forward, while the 1975 impresses for its pure depth and richness, both remarkable for a wine that is nearly 40 years old!
Aging very gracefully, with appealing dried currant, mint, bay leaf and spicy, cedary cigar box and earth notes. Impressive depth and layers of complexity, too, finishing with a long, persistent aftertaste.--1975 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now.
