Notes from the Winemaker:
The 2010 Heritance Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is an assemblage of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. It is deep ruby in color with very red undertones. The aromas are fresh and fruity showing more red fruit at the beginning, while blackberry fruit emerges as the wine breathes. The wine is beautifully fragrant, round, soft and graceful with a hint of spice, becoming increasingly more complex and complete as it opens up. The palate is smooth with plenty of fresh fruit up front giving way to a full and rich mouthfeel. With good structure and a solid core, it is very well balanced. The tannins are well integrated. The finish lingers as elements of spices, cherry, currant, tar and leather surface one after the other.

The grapes for this wine come from valley floor vineyards in the Oakville, Oak Knoll, Napa Valley and Napa Carneros appellations. Most of the soils are alluvial and gravelly in places. The vineyards each have good drainage and although all are drip irrigated, very little irrigation was needed in 2010.

After a few days of cold soaking to enhance good color extraction, the musts were fermented at around 85°F, for about ten days. The assemblage of the small lots and varietals took place in various stages. The wines were aged for twenty months in 1-4 year old barrels, mostly medium-toast French oak with some American oak barrels.

94% Cabernet Sauvignon from Red Hen Vineyard & Jaeger Vineyard/Oak Knoll, Silverado Suscol Vineyard & Oro Puro Vineyard/Napa Valley. 4% Merlot from Skellenger Vineyard/Oakville. 2% Petit Verdot from Huichica Ranch Vineyard/Napa Carneros.
