HEIR APPARENT 2017 RUTHERFORD CABERNET SAUVIGNON NAPA VALLEY

$165.00

Some of Napa Valley’s most memorable, detailed, and hedonistic Cabernets come from an area of Rutherford known as the Rutherford Bench. The bench is over 150 million years old and contains more than 100 soil variations. Icons Staglin, Inglenook, and Morisoli are all positioned there, and Heir Apparent’s 2017 Rutherford Cabernet hails from the Western side of the bench. At $165, it’s a joy to behold, but at this VIP Shhh (keep it on the hush), I highly recommend stocking-up on this 112 case production gem. Because it’s like… BOOM… an explosion on your taste buds:

Description

HEIR APPARENT 2017 CABERNET SAUVIGNON RUTHERFORD, NAPA VALLEY

Heir Apparent is part of Grand Napa Vineyards, and their winery is located in a sweet-spot of Rutherford that sits almost directly across from Peju and not far from Staglin Vineyards. They sourced fruit for their 2017 Rutherford Cabernet from an unnamed site whose Estate wines garner more than $200 per bottle. The 2017 vintage combined 97% Cabernet Sauvignon with 3% Cabernet Franc, and they aged it for around 24 months in barrel. This Napa Red wine has immense power and beautifully knit and precisely detailed flavors that combine intensity and elegance. At this price, you should grab some before it all fades away…

Tasting Notes from Master Sommelier, “The Heir Apparent Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 is a beautiful wine that perfectly defines the Rutherford region. It has a deep-purple color showcasing crushed blackberries, red plums and wild currants, along with tobacco, espresso, and earth notes. There is a wonderful balance of freshness to richness, along with an understated touch of Rutherford Dust that makes this wine shine brightly. Drink between 2020 and 2028..” KEVIN VOGT 94 POINTS
