Heitz Cellar C-91 Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The origin of Lot C-91 begins in the fall of 1969 with the idea that through meticulous site selection and assemblage, we can create something more significant than the sum of its parts. This historical cuvée is sourced exclusively from the renowned single vineyards of Heitz Cellar and showcases a most unique expression of the terroir of the Napa Valley.
Bright, balanced and full of black cherries, this vibrant, moderately tannic wine offers plentiful black-fruit flavors on a slightly tangy texture.
Red and blue fruits, leafy herbs, spring flowers, and some sandalwood notes emerge from the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Lot C-91, a juicy, medium-bodied, elegant wine that lacks a touch of balance as well as length. I do like its purity of fruit, though, and it's certainly enjoyable.
