This rich, supple Cabernet Sauvignon derives its deep purple color from the hillside vineyard in Dutch Henry Canyon where it grows. The USGS map shows the site as an ancient landslide and the soil is principally composed of small crumbled rocks. Dutch Henry Canyon rises abruptly to the east across the Silverado Trail from Three Palms Vineyard. The sustainable hillside vineyard faces west and is moderately-to-very steep and has excellent natural drainage. Heimark Vineyard has been the source of outstanding components of many Cabernet blends in Napa Valley, but this is the first time it is presented as a single-vineyard wine.
The wine is elegant, complex and stylish with vibrant, focused, pure dark berry and ripe plum fruit aromas and ensuing flavors, followed by a long, persistent finish.
