2015 Heitz Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley California
The one and only Heitz. Our wine expert Lance fell in love with the wine while working for Frederick Wildman and Sons in N.Y. It was a staple in the portfolio and Heitz never needed an introduction when he was bringing out the wine. We love how Heitz continues to be vintage specific, really hammering down the style each year allowing the wine to sit. The 2015 expresses beautiful aromas of blackberry contrasted perfectlywith spiced notes of nutmeg. There is a luscious weight and texture to the wine, but also a racy edge of well-balanced acidity on the palate. A powerful, yet elegant wine with wonderful aging potential. A true expression of the Heitz winemaking philosophy. A perfect gift for the holidays!
