Inaugural release of the new Lot C-91 from Heitz Cellars. This is an homage to Joe Heitz as the first release of this bottling since the 1969 vintage.

93 Points Wine Spectator:
"Shows a perfumed note, with red tea and sandalwood hints throughout. Supple red currant, fresh Damson and cherry preserve flavors do the heavy lifting. Fine-grained and very focused on the finish, with some sneaky length to boot. Drink now through 2034."

Lot C-91 is a new wine from Heitz, inspired by a very old one! In the Fall of 1969, Joe Heitz played with creating a high-end blend of small lots from some of Heitz's top single vineyard sites. He dubbed it "Lot C-91." Some 47 years later the current team at Heitz has once again taken select barrels of fruit from legendary sites such at Martha's (Oakville), Trailside (Rutherford) and Linda Falls (Howell Mtn), to create this Napa Valley "Super Cuvée."

In the early 1980s, the Heitz Family acquired a marvelous Rutherford vineyard bordered on one side by the Silverado Trail and nudged on the other by the Conn Creek. In 1989, we introduced our Trailside Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon--an opulent wine that consistently expresses its lineage in bold, luscious statements. Our Trailside Vineyard produces Cabernet grapes that are incredibly intense and flavorful. We try to enhance that natural bravado during our extended aging process by using new French oak barrels
