Dark red cherry, crushed flowers, mint and spice fill out in the glass. At eighteen years of age, the 1997 tastes more like a ten year-old wine! There is no shortage of personality here, but readers need to give the 1997 at least another few years to allow some of the baby fat to melt off. This incredibly youthful Cabernet Sauvignon will drink well for another few decades.

Packs in lots of stuffing while maintaining a sense of fine balance and elegance. Long and persistent flavors on the finish with firm yet well-integrated tannins. Could be a long-ager. Honoring its late winemaker and founder Joe Heitz this is a fairly dramatic youngster made from young vines. No shyness on the price; longtime collectors would do well to check this one out. Best from 2004 through 2014. Tasted twice with consistent notes. 5620 cases made. (JL)
