HEITZ CELLARS CABERNET SAUVIGNON, TRAILSIDE VINEYARD, RUTHERFORD NAPA VALLEY 2012
From a certified-organic vineyard in Rutherford, this is a 100% varietal wine that impresses from start to finish, allowing room for a slight whiff of reduction and tar on the nose. Dark notions of coffee are interwoven between bright layers of cassis and red cherry around structured acidity and oak. Enjoy 2020–2028.
NVWE Notes: This Rutherford Cab brings us a brilliant portrait of both a terrific property and classic winemaking. The nose is at once forthcoming and gorgeously layered, delivering beautifully evolved scents of red berries and mocha (a signature of this vineyard) tied to deep black cherry, Cassis, sweet red plum, licorice root, coffee toffee, cinnamon stick, date molasses, cedar, leather, mace and other baking spices. It is rich in texture and just as packed with fruit and spice on the palate, which push aside any intrusion from the an otherwise notable tannic spine. The finish: generous, classy and lingering, follows the path of the aromas, but with a big burst of cherry and boysenberry at the end. Terrific now, it is five years from its best. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, Certified Organic.
