About the Wine
Wines like this Heir Apparent Cab are one of the reasons BHW exists. We started out offering wines from Napa locals who made excellent wines with top grapes from top AVAs but didn’t have productions large enough to garner much attention outside of the region. We still love to bring you these lesser-known wines because they offer a value that often can’t be beaten. And, you get a chance to experience them before others catch on. This Cab? It deserves to catch on.
Why? First of all, Winemaker Dwight Bonewell of the celebrated Grand Napa Vineyards spearheads the Heir Apparent series of Napa wines, a line of thoughtfully produced wines from Napa’s best AVAs that are hand-crafted with care and whole-hearted resolve. The goal of Heir Apparent is to craftultra-luxury winesmeant to be treasured in a wine lover’s cellar.
And, the grapes for this Napa Cab are from a top location—Napa’s Spring Mountain AVA where rich volcanic soils and 1,300 to 2,000-foot elevations where Bordeaux varieties thrive, Bonewell creates a can’t-be-from-anywhere-but-Napa Cabernet from concentrated and complex mountain fruit born from the“near perfect” 2019 vintage according to Bloomberg.
The 2019 Heir Apparent Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon is certainly memorable. It captures Spring Mountain’ssense of place in the wine’sbalanced structure of mountain fruit and expressive tannins. It will be right at home in the cellar with Napa Cabs of equal quality, but much bigger price tags.
The Heir Apparent Spring Mountain Cab is (not yet) as well known as any of Grand Napa Vineyards Cabs, but it's as meticulously produced, yet priced slightly lower. Because it’s still under the radar, we’ve been able to secure a small number of bottles of this Cab from the excellent 2019 vintage at suchsignificant savings that it will be the easiest decision you make today to add this treasure to your wine cellar.
Tasting Notes: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Ruby color. Aromas ofcherries, plum, blackberry, tobacco, and earth. Well balanced and velvety with bold red and black fruits, vanilla, and spice on the palate. Gentle tannins.
