Heitz Napa Cabernet 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Heitz Cellars Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Oakville 2003 : NVWE NOTES: Deeply rich and altogether distinctive, this is textbook Marthas Cab: packed with beautifully harmonized aromas of sweet red currant, dry Michigan cherry, vanilla, mint, eucalyptus and minerals, with hints of yellow rose and violet. On the palate, it is flavor-packed, precisely focused and full of grip, with flavors of currant, cherry and spice in a sweet-natured and elegant mix that lingers for minutes. Five to six years from its peak, this gorgeous wine is already satisfying and it will repay service with elegant cuisine quite nicely right now. 1,200 cases produced.HEITZ CELLARS MARTHA'S VINEYARD CABERNET SAUVIGNON NAPA VALLEY OAKVILLE 2003

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.

From its vibrant purple hue to its lush, smooth finish, the 2003 Trailside Vineyard Cabernet displays the seamless beauty of a Rutherford classic. Sleek and authoritative, this wine makes an exciting first impression with a lavish bouquet of bold blackberry, dried anise and notes of cedar. It fills the mouth with flavors of dark, brambly fuit wonderfully integrated with French Limousin oak during Heitz extended aging process. Gracefully balanced with firm tannins and lively acidity, this is a Cabernet you will love from beginning to end. Decant it to enjoy today, or cellar it to treasure for many years to come. - Winery
