Lot #510. Heitz Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard 1978

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98 JG.
"1978 was a great, great year for Napa cabernet sauvignon and the Martha’s Vineyard is an utterly profound example of the vintage. The celestial nose soars from the glass in a mélange of red and black cherries, a touch of blood orange, mint, chipotle pepper, allspice, cigar smoke, a touch of nuttiness and a bit of orange zest in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and rock solid at the sappy core, with flawless balance, stunning transparency, very little remaining tannin and laser-like focus on the hauntingly complex and endless finish." View From the Cellar, May/Jun 2011, Issue #33
Provenance: The Foxy Cellar
Notes: Very top shoulder, very lightly scuffed label, #22954.
