The HEITZ 2016 Lot C-91 Cabernet recently scored 96 POINTS from Wine Critic James Suckling … with St. Helena, Oakville, Rutherford, and Howell Mountain Fruit, don’t miss this one.

Joe Heitz pioneered single-vineyard wines in Napa Valley, and in 1969 he blended select plots from his most prized vineyards, discovering that he could create a wine with the qualities he desired most – aging potential, complexity, and depth. Lot C-91 encompasses this art of assemblage, gracefully presented with concentrated fruit, focus, and sophisticated complexity.

*Btw, apparently Joe had a great sense of humor too! Please see more below, and let me know if I can help…

No wonder why Heitz Cellar developed such a devoted Napa Valley Cult Wines following… Heitz is a historic winery that continues to pursue the same traditional, age-worthy style for which they’re well known and respected. For the last 50 years, Heitz Cellar has sourced fruit for Lot C-91 from premium parcels in St. Helena, Oakville, Rutherford, and Howell Mountain, representing a step-up in quality, achieving the density and length of a genuinely fantastic wine, which recently earned an extraordinary score.

96JS | Notes from James Suckling, “Blue fruit with stone, lavender and currant aromas and flavors. Fresh herbs too. Medium-bodied with ultra-fine tannins. Such firmness and focus and beauty. A blend of all their top single vineyards. Drink or hold.” JAMES SUCKLING 96 POINTS
