Heitz Cellar Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

The first sniff brought me right back to Bordeaux. The 50% new French oak stands out and adds to the complexity nicely. We enjoyed this with a bolognese sauce over lentil pasta (from Trader Joes). The 6 years of training in the oak and bottle bring the deep purple / cherry color to an almost majestic sparkle. The taste of cedar, cherry, a bit of earth, mint with a touch of coffee linger for well over 45 seconds. 93+ KK
"Attractive 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."
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.
Ripe 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.
