Lot #692. Heitz Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard 1991

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 94 JG.
"The 1991 vintage has long been touted as one of the great recent vintages for cabernet sauvignon, and this is certainly evident in the ’91 Martha’s Vineyard. The nose is deep, ripe and absolutely classic in its aromatic mélange of red and black cherries, mint, tobacco, a touch of chocolate, lovely soil tones and a deft framing of new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and quite powerful in style, with a great core of pure fruit, a lovely signature of soil, ripe tannins and impeccable balance on the very, very long and tangy finish. Superb juice, and decidedly more impressive than many of the highly-touted 1991 cabernets that I reported on several issues ago in the newsletter. This is still a very young wine and will need a good decade more cellaring to really reach its apogee. " John Gilman, View From the Cellar, May/Jun 2011, Issue #33
