Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Heitz Cellar Trailside Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Heitz Cellar Trailside Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 is an exceptional wine that captures the essence of the Napa Valley. Located at the base of the Vaca Mountain range along the eastern edge of Rutherford, the Trailside Vineyard is known for its well-drained volcanic soil, which allows the vines to produce grapes that reflect the terroir year after year. In 2017, the growing season was nearly perfect, and this is evident in the vibrant notes of rustic red fruit, rosemary, sage, and thyme that are present in the wine.

This Cabernet Sauvignon is vinified in classic Heitz style, which means that it is made with the utmost care and attention to detail. Aged for four years in their cellar followed by a year in the bottle, this wine was created with immediate enjoyment in mind while continuing to evolve for the next 20+ years. The mouthwatering tannins and soft and luxurious finish make this wine a pleasure to drink, whether you choose to enjoy it now or cellar it for years to come.

Heitz Cellar has been producing exceptional wines since 1961, and the Trailside Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a true testament to their commitment to quality. This wine is a must-try for any wine enthusiast, whether you're a fan of Napa Valley wines or simply appreciate a well-crafted Cabernet Sauvignon.

Critic Ratings

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 93:
Fresh, with racy red currant, Damson and red cherry fruit flavors running through. Flecked with light savory notes and hints of sassafras, with an iron note lacing the piercing finish. Latent grip too, so cellar for maximum effect. Drink now through 2035.
