Heitz 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon, Trailside Vyd., Napa Valley
Here's a rare vintage Napa Cab that's been aging to perfection in the winery's cellar for more than a decade. The intensely flavorful wines from Rutherford's Trailside Vineyard have been part of the Heitz range since 1989. The vineyard is flanked by the Silverado Trail on one side and Conn Creek on the other and is certified organic. Heitz Cellars had great success in the exceptional quality 2004 vintage. They say about this single vineyard Cab "From first sip to glorious finish, the 2004 Trailside Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon captures the essence of this superb vintage. This wine is a Rutherford classic, deeply-hued and powerful, with a lush bouquet of fresh raspberry. Its vibrant core of Cabernet fruit is beautifully wrapped in French oak with a slight hint of vanilla. Skillfully balanced with firm tannins and lively acidity, it soars to an unforgettable finish. Decant this wine to enjoy now, or cellar it to reward yourself in years to come." Very Limited!!!
