What To Drink Now: Heitz Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley is the home of Cabernet Sauvignon. The region figured this fact out decades ago, with the Heitz family shining as one of the best representations of the variety in the region. Established in 1961 and still owned by the family today, Heitz Cellar is best known for its elevated single-vineyard Martha’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon ($250.) Heitz Cellar was the first in the region to label a wine noting the single-vineyard designation, something their neighbors soon replicated becoming the norm for showcasing premium quality fruit. Their Napa Valley selection, Heitz Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is easily one of the best bang-for-your-buck wines in Napa. With a suggested retail price of $63 (but you can often find for around $50-$55), the wine leaps from the glass with classic notes of black licorice, cherry, sweet spice, and dark chocolate. Pair with your favorite beef or venison dish, or even with a rich, spiced Mole sauce. Cheers!
