Heitz Wine Cellars, Cabernet Sauvignon 2010, Napa Valley, California
Tasting Note: A cabernet sauvignon you could use as perfume or cologne to attract another wine lover.
This gorgeous cabernet sauvignon delivers cab without the dominating, over-the-top, Napa style.
Deep ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of black fruit and clove-and-cinnamon baking spice along with red cherry, blackberry and raspberry.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus bodied cabernet sauvignon continues baking-spice infused aromatics suggested on the nose along with black fruit.
The tannin is well-integrated and soft around the edges but yields to its fruit-and-spice character.
Bottle Note: Bottle No 23,569 of a total of 25,845 bottles. Bottled April 2014.
