Winemaker Notes

#87 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2018

The scent of fresh strawberries in the glass is followed by a lively mix of red fruits on the palate. Soaring acidity is sculpted with delicate tannins and a nip of white pepper adds an assertive note to the finish.

Lightly chilled, this is a stellar aperitif, and of course, it is perfect with your favorite Italian meal.

A beautiful, sunny Napa Valley red, this light wine makes a powerful argument for old-vine grignolino in a region overrun by young-vine cabernet. Light, bright and floral, almost white in its scent and airy clarity, it’s a vibrant wine to serve with prosciutto or speck.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
The winery has been making this unusual red since 1961 and it is 100% varietal. Wrapped in rose petal, it is lightly textured and possessed of a beautiful, floral nose and takes a light touch to its lovely body of tangy cranberry and red currant. This is a lovely wine for the table or as an aperitif.

James Suckling

A fun, light red that resembles more of a darker rosé with lemon and strawberry aromas, as well as hints of beeswax. Light body, light tannins and a fresh finish. Pizza or burger is the answer here.

Family owned since its founding in 1961, Heitz Cellar’s legacy runs as deep as the roots throughout the Napa Valley; a winery legend that has helped shape the history of Napa Valley winemaking. In the late 1950’s, pioneering vintner Joe Heitz ushered in Napa’s modern era with his iconic, globally celebrated wines, including Napa Valley’s first vineyard-designated Cabernet Sauvignon, the renowned Heitz Cellar Martha’s Vineyard. Fifty-eight years of the Heitz family’s dedication to viticulture, stewardship, and classic winemaking, maintained the winery’s notoriety as a benchmark amongst its peers in California and Europe.

In April, 2018, Heitz Cellar entered an exciting new chapter as this rich legacy was passed into the hands of the Lawrence family, whose deep roots in agriculture and commitment to the same core values of fine winemaking made it a perfect match. The wines are made with an unwavering commitment to quality from organically farmed, 100% Napa Valley fruit, and a commitment to the sustainability of Napa Valley.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
