Product Overview

The 2016 Heitz Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is intended to be an exceptional entry point into the classic Heitz style and hints at what can be experienced with their single-vineyard wines. This Napa blend is sourced primarily from two vineyards in St. Helena: the Only One Vineyard and the Spring Valley Vineyard. It immediately entices with notes of black cherry, sweet plum, fresh raspberries, currants, anise, and clove. These notes are complemented by savory elements, reminiscent of sweet tobacco and new leather. The mouthfeel on this wine has gentle power. It is light and bright with fresh acidity yet there is weight and length that extends long after the first sip of wine. The structure is balanced with soft and developed tannins, only achieved by allowing this wine to age for two full years in barrel and a full year in bottle before release.

Varietal Composition: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Appellation: Napa Valley AVA (Rutherford, St. Helena)
Aging: 2 years in a combination of new and used large oak casks and smaller French barriques, followed by 1 additional year in bottle prior to release

91 Points - Wine Spectator
"A subtle savory edge leads off, followed by enticing rooibos tea, red currant preserve and raspberry coulis flavors. Elegant finish. Drink now through 2026. 19,500 cases made." -JM, 11/15/20
