Cabernet Sauvignon

Heitz Cellar, Cabernet Sauvignon, 1994

RRP £108

Joe Heitz, who died in 2000, was making wine before Robert Mondavi and a full 20 years before Napa legends John Shafer and Warren Winiarski. This wine wears its aristocratic pedigree lightly, from its dense, modern, fresh nose full of graphite and tar, dried flowers and fresh red cherry, to its nicely balanced, mid-weight palate. No need even to discuss the oak, which is a sign of utterly confident winemaking. A harmonious, very American wine, power and finesse personified.
