BACKGROUND

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 Taub Family Vineyards 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.

TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

The grapes are grown on the benches and foothill vineyards in Rutherford AVA. The deep and well-drained soils are primarily gravel, sand, and loam.

WINEMAKING

Hand sorted, fully destemmed grapes. Small, closed fermenters with both native and select Bordeaux yeast isolates are used.

AGEING

Malolactic fermentation in barrel, with total 24 months aging, in 100% new French Oak. Each bottle is individually numbered.

TASTING NOTES

Deep garnet color. On the nose, juicy black cherry, plum, herbs and spice. The wine reveals decadent layers, firm tannins and refined toasted oak structure. A rich, harmonious and balanced palate creates a seamless and age-worthy wine.
