You will enjoy the inaugural 2013 vintage from this Howell Mountain gem, Heitz Wine Cellars Linda Falls Vineyard, named for the neighboring waterfall which tumbles towards the valley below.

Since planting in 2002 Heitz Wine Cellars has nurtured this tiny vineyard, letting it reveal its distinctive character in its own time. It is now ready to step out onto center stage and become a single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon – the fourth in their history.

The first thing you notice about this wine is its color – an inky opacity that sets it apart from their other Cabernet Sauvignons and hints at its mountainous origins. Alluring notes of blueberries and freshly-baked blackberry cobbler give the wine a spicy warmth. Full-bodied, with rich and lingering tannins, the wine evolves as it flows across the tongue, and finishes with a wonderful waft of violets, giving it a fresh lift.

Truly a distinctive wine combining the concentration of Howell Mountain with the style and finesse you would expect from Heitz Wine Cellars, this wine is a limited production with only 450 cases produced.

With your cellar well-stocked, reward yourself in ultimate luxury by escaping to Las Alcobas Napa Valley with a $3,500 gift certificate. Nestled in the heart of downtown St. Helena, enjoy the pleasures of this historic resort where every detail has been perfected with exceptional service and award-winning cuisine to match. Experience Napa Valley from an entirely new perspective.
