Almost perfect but perfection does not exist.
What is striking here is how balance and integrated and youthful this wine is. Had it twice and I cannot see this wine going down. This is the equivalent of Mouton 82 for California. It’s muscular, right, beautifully crafted, oak is integrated, tannins are sublime, beautiful cassis cream, and blonde tobacco. Eucalyptus, tobacco, peppermint are flagrant on the nose .
This is monumental.
One of the very best wines I’ve ever had. BRAVO! #wine #california #heitzwinecellars #1974
