Lot #474. Heitz Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard 1986

Description: Consists of 1 Magnum, 1.5L
Score: 92+ JG.
"The 1986 Martha’s Vineyard is still an impressively young wine and a bit bound up in its adolescence crankiness at the present time, though the underlying quality here is quite evident. The nose offers up a deep mélange of black cherries, a bit of tariness, eucalyptus, cigar ash, fine soil tones, cedar and a topnote of Rutherford dust. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and still quite tight, with a rock solid core of fruit, moderate tannins, tangy acids and fine focus on the long and still quite closed finish. I may be underrating this vintage a tad, but the wine is still quite reticent and needs a handful more years of bottle age before it really starts to stir from its extended hibernation. (Drink between 2016-2050)" View From the Cellar, May/Jun 2011, Issue #33
Provenance: The Arctique Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
