Cabernet Sauvignon

Heritage Reserve


Winemaker’s Notes

From 1973 to 1982, Walter Schug crafted some of California’s most memorable Cabernet Sauvignons and Bordeaux-style blends as the founding winemaker for Joseph Phelps Vineyards. In this legacy we craft our Heritage Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon to exhibit the same finesse, intensity and ability to age that have made his earlier wines valuable collector’s wines. Well-structured Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec fruit is blended with Petit Verdot for a long juicy and savory finish. It shows dense color and structure, bright aromas of violets and blueberries, and ripe fruit flavors reminiscent of cherries, chocolate and cassis. Well-integrated tannins, oak and acidity give it a rich texture and a long, elegant finish. It can be enjoyed on release paired with rich meats and cheeses, yet will reward cellaring for a decade or more
