Heitz Cellar Trailside Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

$125.00

Limited Library Release

Heitz purchased the Trailside Vineyard – nestled between Silverado Trail and Conn Creek, in the heart of Rutherford back in 1984. Each year, the Trailside bottling is not only drawn exclusively from this extremely well-positioned single vineyard, but in fact only the very best individual blocks of Cabernet make the final cut.

While Martha’s Vineyard unapologetically features unrestrained power, the Trailside is all that plus elegance. It still features immense power, but it’s wrapped up in more complex layers of flavor, extremely silky tannins, and a finish that will simply blow your mind.

Decanter laid out the distinction almost perfectly in their 97 point review. “Trailside Vineyard has been a Rutherford estate site for Heitz Cellar since 1984 and produces one of the most undersung Cabernets in the Napa Valley. Martha’s Vineyard may garner more attention, but the Trailside bottling is every bit its equal in terms of complexity. Softer and more nuanced than the rustic Martha’s, the nose and texture here are dictionary definitions for Rutherford: dusty, plush and long. The finish is astounding in its power and relative weightlessness. A superb wine!

96 Points, Wine Enthusiast
From a Rutherford site, this 100% varietal, estate wine is aged similarly to the producer’s fine Martha’s Vineyard bottling, given plenty of time in new and neutral oak as well as in bottle. Beguiling spice and a warmth of red fruit provide tangy freshness around lengthy layers of salty oak, iron and baked plum.
