Heron - Laely Cabernet Sauvignon - Napa Valley
Overview: Laely moved to San Francisco and launched Heron Wines in 1995. At the time it was rare to see a woman owning a business in an industry traditionally populated by men. Her first release, a Merlot from St. Chinian in southern France, debuted in the U.S. that same year. Her portfolio soon expanded to include California Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah in addition to a six varietal blend from the Terra Alta region of Spain. Over the next decade, Heron would become a “cult wine” among master sommeliers and chefs, a favorite “by the glass” pour in the
nation’s top restaurants and a consistent “Best Buy” in the wine press.
Tasting Notes: Buzzing acidity adorns this otherwise powerfully full-bodied wine, made from a range of appellations, including Atlas Peak and Howell Mountain. Earthy dried herb, sage and cedar complement core of lengthy oak, tannin and structure.
Pairing: Beef, game, mature and hard cheeses
