Lovely aromas of blackcurrants and dark chocolate with hints of flowers. Ever so subtle. Medium full body, firm and silky tannins and a juicy finish. Shows tension and focus. Drink or hold. (5/2018)

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon shows just how compelling this vintage is, even among the more modestly-priced, entry-level offerings. Pliant and aromatically expressive, with terrific nuance, the 2013 has a lot to offer. Best of all, this super-classic, old-school Cabernet is a terrific value within the realm of Napa Valley.

"Our 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet is a knockout from a vintage that has been declared a modern classic.
One sniff, and anticipation takes hold. 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."
About The Winemaker:
There is always that moment of truth for any second-generation winemaker. David Heitz mastered his moment at a very young age, and he has continued to create stunning wines for more than three decades. Although futuristic when it comes to farming methods and updating equipment, David says he does not feel the pressure to run after every trend in winemaking. He favors bold, yet precision-balanced wines that reflect a polished purity. Clearly, quality has been foremost in David's thinking for most of his life. The classic Heitz label that stands out in stores today is based on a crayon drawing that David made when he was 11 years old. It depicts a cellar man holding a glass of wine up to the light — undoubtedly a quality check in progress.
About The Winery:
Heitz Wine Cellars inhabits a pristine valley in the eastern hills of St. Helena known to the locals as Spring Valley. The gray stone cellar, constructed of hand-chiseled perlite in 1898, safeguards Heitz' collection of French oak barrels which are filled with aging wine. The rich patina of its weathered walls is in perfect harmony with the high-tech equipment dotting the landscape of the winery's grounds in the 21st century. Second generation Kathleen Heitz Myers and David Heitz are now at the helm as president and winemaker. They have each been integral to the success of the family business since the 1970s, helping to build the worldwide reputation for Heitz Cellars — a name that has become synonymous with luxury in the world of winemaking.
