The 2015 Vintage was known for its unusually warm weather which lead to reduced yields at harvest. Luckily those reduced yields resulted in impeccable quality of fruit. This vintage expresses great depth of flavor and intensity, which offers a truly memorable wine drinking experience right now and will continue to shine many years in the future. The Palate expresses beautiful aromas of blackberry contrasted perfectly with spiced notes of nutmeg. There is a luscious weight and texture to the wine, but also a racy edge of well-balanced acidity on the palate. A powerful, yet elegant wine with wonderful aging potential. A true expression of the Heitz winemaking philosophy.
Woody, herbal and elegantly structured, this wine is high-toned and freshly layered in bold red fruit. Given time in the barrel and the bottle, it shows its graceful edges and nuanced elegance with ease, finishing in dusty crushed rock. It vastly overdelivers on its price point.
