Heitz Wine Cellars inhabits a pristine valley in the eastern hills of St. Helena known to the locals as Spring Valley. In 1964, Joe and Alice Heitz acquired this 160-acre ranch and winery to accommodate their burgeoning family business. The gray stone cellar, constructed of hand-chiseled perlite in 1898, safeguards Heitz' collection of French oak barrels which are filled with aging wine. The rich patina of its weathered walls is in perfect harmony with the high-tech equipment dotting the landscape of the winery's grounds in the 21st century. Second generation Kathleen Heitz Myers and David Heitz are now at the helm as president and winemaker. They have each been integral to the success of the family business since the 1970s, helping to build the worldwide reputation for Heitz Cellars, a name that has become synonymous with luxury in the world of winemaking. Heitz Zinfandel is instantly inviting with its striking ruby hue and the fresh, fruitiness of its bouquet. The mouthwatering flavor of crushed raspberry with notes of cracked pepper is skillfully integrated with French oak. This wine shows supple character as it reaches mid-palate, displaying just the right balance of soft tannins and bright acidity to enhance the fruit.Raise a glass of this delightful wine and discover for yourself why dedicated fans have always appreciated the classic beauty of Heitz Zinfandel.
