Napa Valley has an idyllic terroir, encompassing everything from soil type, topography, and climate for growing premium Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. It’s equally as prime for growing other Bordeaux varieties like Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Heir Apparent’s Proprietary Red combines 40% Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot and Cabernet Franc in a harmonistic and extraordinary way.  

Heir Apparent created their Proprietary Red from fruit sourced from one of the top growers in Napa Valleys cooler-climate Carneros Region. An NDA agreement will not allow us to divulge the exact vineyard location, but once you taste it, all you’ll care about is how quickly you can get more.

Winemakers seeking Bordeaux grapes with softer, more elegant tannins and perfectly balanced fruit and acids love what Carneros offers. The clay loam soils combined with cooler temperatures moderated by winds from the Pacific Ocean, then funneled through the Petaluma gap, contribute to a prolonged growing season and potential for brilliant wines.

Description

2017 HEIR APPARENT NAPA VALLEY PROPRIETARY RED

“… the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 HeirApparent Red Blend gives up warm cassis, stewed plum and black olives scents followed by suggestions of spice box, cedar chest and pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers firm, grainy tannins and just enough plum and black berry laced flavors, finishing a little chewy.”
90 Points
“This gem of a blend is proving the connection to Bordeaux and that Napa Valley can produce elegant, refined and so complex Bordeaux-style blend in the purest french style. With a dark color, it shows a complex and refined nose, with cedar and blackberry aromas accented with fine leather and cedar notes. On the palate, you will discover a full-bodied wine, smooth but tightly wound. Cedar, graphite and gentle leather return, all perfectly integrated, with a persistent and elegant finish. It has a lovely texture, with super-fined tannins and sublime integration of oak showing black pepper and firmness with cedar characters.”
