JK'S NOTE OF THE DAY
It was 1974 Heitz Martha's Vineyard time. Is there a more storied and fabled Cabernet in all of California? Perhaps the 1941 Inglenook, but there is a much smaller group of storytellers for that wine than the 1974 Heitz. This bottle lived up to the hype. It had huge mint on the nose, a veritable printing press for currency, I thought, and then I had my own flashback of Mouton Rothschilds from the 40s and 50s. Bob joked a julep at Churchill Downs. I think those are enough references for its minty qualities! The wine was meaty, rich, smooth, chocolaty and delicately spicy. The wine also gave me an acupuncture impression with its precision and prickle on the palate. Chocolaty, meaty and rich got written again by me you get the idea (97).
