Heitz 2010

We’ve had this for a year or two and decided to open it for Easter dinner. Aromas of vanilla, plums, and other dark fruit. On the palate silky tannins, excellent acid balance and tons of fruit. Even if you think you don’t like cabs, if you can find this you’ll love it.

Heitz has quite a library available on their website. You can pick up a bottle of this for a mere $80. It looks like this was the last vintage from this vineyard. Get it while you can.
