2013 Heitz Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, California

There aren't many 100% Cabernet Sauvignons made these days yet Heitz Cellars is still one of the classics. We loved the 2012 and think this 2013 follows perfectly in its footsteps. Another great vintage year helped produce another great bottle of wine, suitable for drinking now with a bit of decanting or for long-term aging. Or as winemaker David Heitz says, "it's a knockout from a vintage that has been declared a modern classic." After resting peacefully in the Heitz cellar for three years before release, this wine once again shows its provenance as well as its structure and grace. David continues to sing its praises by noting that its "beautiful aromas of vine-ripened blackberry contrast perfectly with spicy 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. This is an extraordinary Cabernet – powerful, yet elegant, with all the wonderful aging potential you’ve come to expect from Heitz wines."
