Lot #964. Heitz Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard 1973

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 95 JG.
"The 1973 Martha’s Vineyard is fully mature and is drinking beautifully at nearly forty years of age. The deep and utterly classic nose offers up scents of red and black cherries, petroleum jelly, fresh mint, chipotle peppers, spice tones, a beautiful base of soil and a nice touch of nutskins in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and absolutely à point, with a silky palate impression, lovely intensity of flavor, lovely complexity and stunning length and grip on the perfectly focused and dancing finish. The ’73 Martha’s Vineyard will not last anywhere near as long as wines such as the 1974 or 1975, but it still has plenty of life in it and will continue to dazzle for decades to come. Just a beautiful bottle of wine." John Gilman, View From the Cellar #33, Jun 2011
Provenance: The Foxy Collection.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $375
