Heitz’s entry level Cabernet offers a terrific value and a gives wine lovers a glimpse of everything the winery does, combining fruit from some of the most sought after land in all the valley. 2016 was a particularly strong year for Napa Valley Cabernet, so it’s no surprise that this beauty offers a really good look at the combination of power and finesse, while brining freshness and elegance to the forefront. This is a good one to drink now or stash away for a few years and open later down the road.
