Like its siblings, the Heitz Napa Valley bottling is 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon. In earlier vintages it has been blended from grapes purchased from two or more vineyards. Henceforth, it will come from Heitz Vineyards located in Rutherford, augmented occasionally by an addition from "Martha's Vineyard," "Bella Oaks Vineyard," or both, depending on the vintage. Although this wine receives three and a half years of American and French oak aging, our Napa Valley Cabernet is vinified to be softer and more approachable when it is released. It has been frequently cited as an outstanding value in Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons due to the extra time and care it receives in our cellars.
