Winemaker Notes

These single vineyard, 100% Cabernet Sauvignons, from the north slope of Diamond Mountain, are all aged in Taransaud barrels. The estate vineyard is 28 acres, and the proprietors are Mike and Treva Harris. All the 2006s were vinified by Mark Herold, but since then, Thomas Brown has been hired as the winemaker. Brown finished the final blends for the 2006s, and made the 2007s. These are big, mountain-styled Cabernets with no shortage of muscle or power. Production ranges between 180 and 250 cases. The 2006s are firmer and evidence more structure, tannin, and power than the more seamless 2007s. Analytically, I doubt that the tannin level in the 2007s is lower, it’s just that the tannins are riper and more integrated.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The strongest 2006 cuvee is the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Treva’s Vineyard. It reveals a dense purple color along with more upfront fruit than its two 2006 brethren, and cedar-infused black currant flavors revealing a scorched earth note in the background. This opulent, fleshy 2006 has more in common with a 2007 than the general muscle-laden character of most 2006s. Stunningly rich and fruit-forward, it is low in acidity, but riper with sweeter tannins than its peers. Drink it now or cellar it for twenty years.

Heritage School Vineyards, Diamond Mountain District, Napa Valley, California
Image of winery
Heritage School Vineyards (formerly Harris Estate Vineyards) are a small producer of premium Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from the Calistoga AVA. They have three estate-grown vineyards planted in the diverse terrain of their 48-acre property. The wines from these vineyards are crafted by winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown and perfectly reflect the terroir of the Franz Valley area. Once a private boys school, the sprawling property offers a glimpse into the hard work and dedication we have put forth into Heritage School Vineyards. The vineyards and wine have become a true way of living for the owners that Harris Estate Vineyards hopes to share with you.

Diamond Mountain District

View all wine

Diamond Mountain is the northernmost mountain appellation in the Mayacamas Range, on the northwest side of the valley floor, above the town of Calistoga. Defined mainly by elevation, vineyards are planted at 400 to 2,200 feet.

Diamond Mountain vineyards receive plenty of sunshine at these elevations and are typically above the coastal fog line. But given its western proximity, the area still easily cools down from early morning and late afternoon Pacific Ocean breezes. The AVA (American Viticultural Area) covers 5,000 acres but just over 500 acres are under vine.

Diamond Mountain soils, mainly weathered, red sedimentary rock and decomposed, volcanic ash, are infertile, quick-draining and produce small, thick-skinned grapes, bursting with chewy tannins.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Zinfandel have great success here.

Like other sub-appellations in Napa Valley, the Diamond Mountain area had no shortage of pioneer winemakers. Rudy von Strasser led the effort for Diamond Mountain to acquire AVA status in 1999.

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all wine

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon is now the world's most planted grape variety. Inherently high in tannins and acidity, the best bottlings of Cabernet can age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region and forms the base of the Medoc reds, which are typically mostly Cabernet with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. (Enjoying a great deal of success in various regions around the world, this blend is now globally referred to as a Bordeaux Blend.) Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and sought-after “cult” wines.

In the Glass

High in color, tannin and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it is typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California Washington, Argentina, Chile and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

Perfect Pairings

Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

Sommelier Secrets

Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA profiling revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
