Heitz Cabernet Napa Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

100% Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine makes a good first impression with its striking garnet color and vibrant bouquet, but it is memorable for the depth of its varietal character. Centrally focused around a rich core of fruit, it fills the mouth with tiers of bright cherry flavor and underlying notes of darker berry. With a nice balance of lively oak tannins and brisk acidity, this wine glides easily across the palate for a lengthy and satisfying finish. Alcohol 14.5%.

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.

Heitz is a family-run winery that has been operating since the early 1960s, making classically styled wines that are at once subtle and layered in complexity. This wine showcases the long growing season with dense dark cherry and currant fruit and a core of bright acidity. Vanilla and spice notes frame these flavors, with well-integrated, fine-grained tannins knitting it all together. Drinking well already, this is sure to offer pleasure for many, many years to come.

Great depth and complexity lurking under the rich, perfectly ripe fruit. Full of the kinds of fruit and herbal flavors that typifies cabernet sauvignon at its best--cassis, black cherry, hints of tobacco, minerals and vanilla, with smooth tannins leading to a very long finish.
