Heitz Cellar Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
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 is our perfect representation of a what a Napa Valley Cabernet should and can be. Its bright and inviting aroma matched by smooth tannins and a refreshing, yet lingering finish, compels you to go back for another sip. I personally love the Napa Valley Cabernet for its classic expression of Napa Valley terroir. 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 this Cabernet is a thoughtful choice to express the very best of what Heitz Cellar, and Napa Valley, has to offer.

James SucklingAttractive red berries and red licorice in this medium-bodied Cabernet. There’s handy freshness and detailed red plums and blackcurrants and a smooth, fine and juicy feel to the finish. Drink or hold
Wine Enthusiast*Editors’ Choice* Representing one of the finest values in Napa Cabernet, this 100% varietal wine is bright and plush, layered in anise and cassis liqueur. A fresh high-toned midpalate evolves to show a softly round ending as a classic style of structure and elegance play out.
Wine SpectatorRipe and focused, featuring a pretty beam of cassis and cherry puree flavors lined with light singed vanilla, tea, sandalwood and anise notes. Polished and fine-grained through the finish. Drink now through 2030. 22,000 cases made.
