Heitz Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon Trailside Vineyard 2015
|Out of stock
A tapestry of sixteen blocks of cabernet sauvignon, planted with seven different clones, in layers of eight different soil types covering eighty five acres; our magical Trailside Vineyard is the quintessential expression of the Rutherford terroir.
“The alluvial soil combined with a gradual slope towards Conn Creek makes this site ‘textbook perfect’ for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. We have planted the vines on an east-west orientation to evenly ripen the fruit throughout the day with dappled, gentle sunlight, resulting in small berries and ultimately, a smooth and concentrated wine.” – Brittany Sherwood, Winemaker

A rich and layered red with a full body and soft, round tannins. Lovely bayleaf and rose petal undertones. Chocolate and coffee. Denser palate. Plenty of length, but framed nicely. So drinkable but better with age. One for the cellar. Drink or hold.
