A Party, a Dinner and 6 Date Nights
• 9 bottles of Napa Valley wine, as noted
Heritance (heritage and inheritance) is named to reflect the rich heritage of Bernard Portet, a 9th- generation French vintner. Bernard is one of the iconic pioneers who helped revitalize the American wine industry in the 1970’s.
His signature assemblage winemaking approach is to blend small lot wines from different varieties and terroirs to create finished wines that are greater than the sum of their parts. Heritance relies upon grower-partners to source the highest quality fruit from premier Napa Valley vineyards. The wines are elegant and accessible, complex and balanced, and are crafted to pair beautifully with food. This special offering affords the lucky recipient a personal collection of occasion-worthy wines. Drink now or lay down for 10 plus years.
The 2010 Heritance Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is an assemblage of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. It is deep ruby in color with very red undertones. The aromas are fresh and fruity showing more red fruit at the beginning, while blackberry fruit emerges as the wine breathes. The wine is beautifully fragrant, round, soft and graceful with a hint of spice, becoming increasingly more complex and complete as it opens up. The palate is smooth with plenty of fresh fruit up front giving way to a full and rich mouth-feel. With good structure and a solid core, it is very well balanced. The tannins are well integrated. The finish lingers as elements of spices, cherry, currant, tar and leather surface one after the other.
