HEITZ CELLAR, CABERNET SAUVIGNON, MARTHA'S VINEYARD 1974
Heitz Cellar, Cabernet Sauvignon, Martha's Vineyard 1974
Napa
u. 1vts, 1ts, 1t/hs, slightly scuffed labels and capsules, excellent color and clarity

In 2014, I had my greatest bottle of this extraordinary wine, bought when very young and never moved from our own cellar. Excellent level and cork. On this showing, oh, to be 40 again! Deep, dense colour. A bouquet of mint, eucalyptus and transcendental intensity. Cassis, blackberry, liquorice and tar on the palate, like a liqueur sent from the Gods. Far thicker density than any Bordeaux. The taste goes on eternally, with fabulous sweetness and glycerol. Becomes more tarry and less opulent, but more mystic, as it goes down, inexorably, in the glass. Serena Sutcliffe, MW WA 98
