2013 Heller Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

2013 Heller Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
2013 Heller Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

100% Cabernet Franc

Our classical interpretation of Cabernet Franc exhibits a medium body with a balanced acidity.  Flavors of tart cranberry, dark chocolate and spice in the mouth with elegant structure and finish.  Enjoy this food friendly wine with a lovely grilled pork tenderloin, Moroccan lentil stew or a delicious roasted turkey.

Tasting notes

Dark, rich fruit aromas of plum, cranberry and cassis. Also, notes of mocha, bay laurel and subtle spiciness. Palate: Big, broad shouldered with slight chalky tannins. Bright berry and dark fruit flavors. Elements of dark, ripe plum and tart cherry extend nicely through the middle. Finishes with a nice dusty tannin fade and elements of mocha/bittersweet chocolate. Pair this cellar worthy cabernet with a pepper crusted T-bone steak topped with blue cheese crumbles or a black mission fig, goat cheese pizza with arugula. Mushroom pot pie would be another lovely pairing.

Overlooking the Cachagua region of Carmel Valley, ("Cachagua" is said to be an Indian derivative of the French "cacher" and the Spanish "agua" meaning ‘hidden waters’) and framed by the dramatic surrounding hills, lie the beautiful mountain vineyards of the Heller Estate. The 120 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Pinot Noir are planted at an altitude of 1200 - 1500 feet, producing rich, luscious grapes, which result in outstanding premium wines. The vineyards are certified 100% organic. Neither herbicides nor pesticides are used in the production of the grapes. This certification was granted after three vintages of clean farming, although the vineyards have always employed organic methods throughout the years.
