Heitz Cellar C-91 Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
The Palate of the 2016 Lot C-91 Cuvee exhibits the density and length that only the truly great wines of the world are capable of. The soft expression of red and black fruits are a result of harvesting earlier while the fruit is still fresh and vibrant and having patience as the wine undergoes one of the longest aging regiments in the region. A clear differentiation between the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and the Lot C-91 is the presence of savory elements such as sage, rosemary, cured meats, and black pepper. This patient approach allows for the integration of tannin, alcohol, acidity, and fruit. The result is a wine of incredible complexity and harmony, that is true to the place it comes from.
