Heitz Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

"As a winemaker, the ability to use our own vineyards throughout Napa Valley to craft this wine is one of the things I look forward to most each year. Each vineyard and each block of fruit that goes into the Napa Valley is a thoughtful choice to express the very best of what Heitz Cellar, and Napa Valley, has to offer. The 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet strikes you visually with its brilliant bright purple and ruby hues. On the nose, notes of black cherry, blackberries, ripe raspberry, and tart plum are complemented by savory herbal notes and a gentle vanilla lift from oak aging. This a perfect representation of a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon."- _Notes from the Producer_

Heitz Wine Cellars inhabits a pristine valley in the eastern hills of St. Helena known to the locals as Spring Valley. In 1964, Joe and Alice Heitz acquired this 160-acre ranch and winery to accommodate their burgeoning family business. The gray stone cellar, constructed of hand-chiseled perlite in 1898, safeguards Heitz' collection of French oak barrels which are filled with aging wine. The rich patina of its weathered walls is in perfect harmony with the high-tech equipment dotting the landscape of the winery's grounds in the 21st century. Second generation Kathleen Heitz Myers and David Heitz are now at the helm as president and winemaker. They have each been integral to the success of the family business since the 1970s, helping to build the worldwide reputation for Heitz Cellars --- a name that has become synonymous with luxury in the world of winemaking. Heitz Wine Cellars has earned countless accolades for its dazzling wines every year since 1961. Their three renowned vineyard-designated wines --- Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Trailside Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Bella Oaks Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon --- are the highlight of the winery's distinguished resumé. Heitz' remarkable Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has been a collector's favorite for over 40 years. Wine Spectator underscored this wine's legendary status by selecting Martha's Vineyard Cabernet as one of the Top 12 wines of the 20th Century. Heitz Wine Cellars' Chardonnay, Grignolino, Zinfandel and Port have also earned their share of ardent fans over the years. To many admirers, the Heitz label is the premiere symbol of fine wine and graceful hospitality. "We handcraft our wines with the utmost respect for the incomparable vineyards of the Napa Valley. It's a real pleasure to share a bit of their magical bounty in every bottle of wine we make." - Kathleen Heitz Myers, President Since the winery ranch also includes the Heitz' family home, we direct visitors to our original site on St. Helena Highway where we have welcomed wine lovers for almost half a century.

aromas of raspberries, red currants, blackberries, very fruit forward but with structure behind it, balanced acidity, underlying tannings but not overpowering, can be enjoyable without a meal

This is a great wine for 2010, ready to drink and sure to impress. It is a full bodied red that brings an elegance to a simple meal and class to a moment requiring ambiance. Great color, texture and nose. This is from an extremely consistant producer who, for sure in the 2004/2005 vintages, has not dissapointed. As a person that prefers bigger wines this is right in the wheel house. Hold it for the fall /winter times later this year.

Complex, deep and bold, this wine should open up over the next 5-10 years and be remarkably complex. Some people scoff at the idea of holding on to $50 wines for any length of time, but I can assure you this wine will be worth drinking down the road. Heitz knows how to make a cab, and this is one has powerful fruit and oak overtones with a subtle texture of spice and espresso. Deep red color with great legs, this wine is a meal in itself, or paired well with pasta.

Our 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet is a stunning wine from the popular 2007 vintage. Unquestionably a Heitz Wine Cellars cabernet, this is a classic wine of finesse and elegance - beautiful now and structured to age gracefully for years to come.The rich varietal aroma leads to delicious flavors of dark cherry with notes of spicy plum. A generous core of cabernet fruit is nicely integrated with refreshing acidity and just the right touch of oak. This wine is silky in texture, building momentum as it crosses the palate to a lovely, lingering finish. - Winery

Well-integrated with lovely hints of ripe blueberries and raspberries, this wine follows through on the palate with an inner sweetness, almost like melted chocolate, yet it has a well-focused acidity on the finish.

Vintage: 2005 05/18/2011

Excellent richness, concentration and range of flavors, with firm, spicy currant, black cerry, pencil lead and minty-cedary notes, finishing with a tight grip from the tannins. Best from 2004 through 2012.

The 2005 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon captures the perfection of this exceptional vintage. This is a wine with a striking varietal aroma that quickly engages the senses and then delivers on its promise. It is brimming with dark cherry flavor, notes of vanilla and a touch of dried spice. Nicely balanced with bright acidity, this wine moves smoothly across the palate to an elegant finish. One sip will definitely lead to another with this Cabernet! It is irresistible now, and it will continue to age gracefully. - Winery ** Only 1 in Stock **
