Heitz Cellar Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 1985

$319

...gobs of sweet fruit presented in a full-bodied, powerful style are objectionable. The wine was more developed and open than I expected. The mint/eucalyptus character, which can be extremely intense in the Martha's Vineyard cuvee, was presented in a subtle fashion. Expansive and chewy, with superb ripe fruit and concentration, this wine should continue to drink well for 10-20 years. Robert Parker

Very complete and plummy. Spearmint and a fennel seed and white pepper palate. Fresh still. Very good.

A little tainted (mustiness) keeps it from being a great bottle.

Number 2 wine of the night. Amazing fruit and complexity. Classic menthol with a minute long finish.

I have had this wine a few times this bottle has cassis menthol minerals with some tca from barrel funk but has the raw material that this adds to the complexity . A serious bottle that will live for years to come .
