Heitz Cabernet Sauvignon Lot C-91 2016

$99.00

96 Points, James Suckling

In the 2016 vintage, for the first time since 1969, the Heitz team has decided to bottle this historic lot separately once again for the winery’s 60th anniversary. As they described it: “Throughout the years, studying Joe’s notes and gaining a deeper understanding of the terroirs of the various parcels has allowed us to resurrect Lot C-91, a historical cuvée with an unprecedented depth, complexity, and aging potential… the 2016 Lot C-91 exhibits the density and length of which only the truly great wines of the world are able to achieve.”

The 2016 is indeed monumental in stature – having already received a 96 from James Suckling, one of the few reviewers lucky to have tasted it. I found it immensely complex with exciting nuances of what this will become in the future. In addition to all the decadent dark fruit are underlying elements of Italian herbs, cured meats, and even black pepper.

For 99 bucks this is a phenomenal bottle of wine right now and will get substantially better each and every year for at least another 20. And if it’s anything like past Heitz releases, it will likely increase in value about 1000% as well.

Blue fruit with stone, lavender and currant aromas and flavors. Fresh herbs too. Medium-bodied with ultra-fine tannins. Such firmness and focus and beauty. A blend of all their top single vineyards. Drink or hold.
