Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot
The Taub family’s roots in the California wine business date back to the days just following the end of Prohibition. Three generations of Taubs, starting with Martin Taub, have contributed to an illustrious and enterprising legacy in the wine and spirits trade. Heritance is the cornerstone Napa Valley winery from the Taub Family Vineyards.
The name Heritance itself is fittingly derived, from a combination of ‘heritage’ and ‘inheritance’, signifying the start of a new tradition and the continuation of an enduring legacy. Heritance represents selections from the best sites in St. Helena, Yountville, Oakville, and Rutherford – including a single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from the heritage site Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III. A commitment to classic Napa style, set Heritance wines apart and deeply root them in America’s best known wine region. The valley oak pictured on the label, a familiar part of any Napa landscape, further reinforces the wine’s connection with its provenance.
The grapes are from 100% Napa Valley vineyards - all located in the core growing sites and mid-valley from key appellations Rutherford, Yountville, Oakville, and St. Helena.WINEMAKING
