Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Heritance Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is an assemblage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. A medium-deep to dark ruby hue with some violet overtones is gorgeous in the glass. A gentle swirl releases fragrant black fruit aromas and a beautiful touch of oak that adds pleasant spice and complexity, without hiding the elegant and pleasing structure. This wine is full, round and well-anchored with a classic finish. Although it can age, it is ready to be enjoyed right now.

Blend: 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot
