90 Points, Parker’s Wine Advocate
Heitz’s 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is predominantly St. Helena fruit, but it includes grapes from other AVAs as well. With its cherry notes and some darker, more cassis-like nuances, hints of dried herbs and dusty earth, it’s pretty classic old-school Cabernet. Medium to full-bodied, it’s linear, silky and fine, avoiding any sense of jammy excess.
