Heitz Cellars

Founded over 50 years ago by Joe and Alice Heitz, Heitz Cellars has earned a reputation as one of Napa’s landmark wineries. The Heitz Martha’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was voted by Wine Spectator as one of the Top 12 wines of the 20th century and the 1970 vintage competed in the now famous Paris Tasting of 1976. Today second generation Kathleen Heitz Myers and David Heitz are now at the helm as president and winemaker respectively, and carry on the Heitz family tradition.

Heitz 2009 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The Heitz 2009 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and lush with a striking garnet hue. The wine is immediately captivating with its delicious aroma of crushed blackberry and notes of cassis. Deep berry flavors explode in the mouth in a delightful integration of varietal complexity. This is a big wine to linger over, impressively balanced with velvety tannins on the finish.

Heitz 2010 Zinfandel

Our 2010 Ink Grade Zinfandel captures the beauty of the varietal without going over the top — a medium-bodied wine that is terrific with a wide range of cuisines. The rich core of Zinfandel fruit is beautifully expressed with a fresh, raspberry bouquet. This wine is loaded with bright flavors that unwind slowly with supple tannins. A spicy tang of cracked pepper gives a pleasing lift to the finish. In one word: delicious. Try this Zinfandel once, and you will definitely choose it often.

Heitz 2013 Chardonnay

Aromas of crisp, ripe apple and Asian pear mingle in the glass, while an invigorating acidity plays across the tongue. This is a medium-bodied Chardonnay with a touch of French oak to give it added dimension and an elegant, lasting finish. A delightful Chardonnay that you will want to savor and revisit all season long.

Heitz 2013 Sauvignon Blanc

The crisp, tangy flavor of our 2013 Sauvignon Blanc captures the joie de vivre of the grape in grand fashion. This wine dazzles with its refreshing varietal bouquet and juicy citrus flavor. Notes of white peach add complexity, and a lively minerality on the tongue makes it an excellent match for seafood or spicy dishes.

Heitz 2009 Martha’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2009 Martha’s Vineyard is an impressive wine with remarkable clarity and depth of flavor. The enticing dark garnet color of this Cabernet softens and elongates as you tilt the wine glass to see the translucence of the hue on the edges. Its classic, clean mint aroma evokes a smile in recognition of an “old friend”. On the palate, layers of complexity show an opulence of fruit, smoothly integrated with the core tannins of a slightly cooler growing season. This is a beautifully focused wine with textbook varietal character.
