Description

Heitz whose  wines are all 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, farmed sustainably and certified organic by CCOF and Certified Fish Friendly Farming,  we introduce their new packaging and for the first time Lot C-91 which was last produced in 1969. Throughout the years, studying Joe’s notes and gaining a deeper understanding of the terroirs of the various parcels has allowed them to resurrect Lot C-91, a historical cuvée with an unprecedented depth, complexity, and aging potential.  In keeping with the original vision, Lot C-91 continues to be sourced from treasured parcels in Western Oakville, Eastern Rutherford, Southeast Howell Mountain, and the foothills of St. Helena represents a greater step up in quality from the acclaimed Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon but regretfully very limited.

Tasting note:The presence of savory elements such as sage, rosemary, cured meats, and black pepper distinguish this Cuvée from any other. 

Grape variety:100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Terroir/Vinification

Climate:Mediterranean
Harvest:The final drought-influenced vintage since 2012, the growing season started early and continued on a steady pace throughout the ideal weather of summer, without serious heat spikes. An increase in temperature at the end of the growing season allowed grapes to achieve perfect ripeness and phenolic maturity, without the stress of inclement weather.

Acidity:6.9g/L
PH:3.36
Residual sugar:2.8g/L
