Heitz Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

2016 Heitz Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon...$59.99
Very polished and refined with plum, light chocolate, coffee and mahogany aromas. Medium-bodied with medium tannins and a savory and juicy finish. Hard not to drink now. Will improve with age. Drink now or hold.
Rated 93/100 James Suckling
A subtle savory edge leads off, followed by enticing rooibos tea, red currant preserve and raspberry coulis flavors. Elegant finish. Drink now through 2026. 19,500 cases made.
Rated 91/100 Wine Spectator

2017 Heitz Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon...$63.99
Heitz's 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is predominantly St. Helena fruit, but it includes grapes from other AVAs as well. With its cherry notes and some darker, more cassis-like nuances, hints of dried herbs and dusty earth, it's pretty classic old-school Cabernet. Medium to full-bodied, it's linear, silky and fine, avoiding any sense of jammy excess.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate
