Description

This throws off some seriously ripe and alluring fruit, with raspberry, blackberry and cherry coulis notes streaming through, framed tightly by a mouthwatering anise note and ending with a bolt of graphite. Impressive focus and drive throughout.- WS93

From a certified-organic site in Rutherford and 100% varietal, this wine has benefitted from time in the bottle, dazzling in soft silky red fruit and jolts of nutmeg and dust. Beautifully layered, structured and brightly vibrant, it has impressive coaxings of cigar, cedar and a rich hint of wild vanilla.- WE95

Some darker and more powerful style to this single vineyard cab that delivers abundant blackcurrant and blueberry aromas and flavors. The tannins are long and fine, really even and commanding. Beautiful balance, too. Drink or hold.- JS94

Since its inaugural 1989 vintage, this outstanding vineyard has been part of the Heitz Cellar estate and produces one of our three, single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons. Nestled between the Silverado Trail and Conn Creek on the fertile, eastern side of the Rutherford AVA, only the best blocks are selected for this vineyard designate wine.

"Blackberry, ripe raspberry, cassis liqueur, and briar notes fill the glass and are complemented by an earthy sweetness that Trailside has become synonymous with. Fresh vanilla, toasted nuts, and baking spice characteristics from the Limousin oak give an elegant lift to the ripe fruit notes.”- Winemaker's Notes

The Winery

Heitz Wine Cellars has played a significant role in the history of Napa Valley winemaking since 1961. Founders, Joe and Alice Heitz, produced their first bottle of wine with a commitment to excellence that now spans three generations. Thoday, sibling team, Kathleen Heitz Myers and David Heitz, lead the family business as president and winemaker, producing wines that are recognized worldwide for their purity, balance and proven age-ability. Heitz Cellars is internationally acclaimed for the consistent brilliance of its vineyard-designated Cabernets. When Heitz Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was introduced in 1966, it was the first Napa Cabernet with the vineyard-designation on the label.
