    Indulge in the exquisite allure of Heimark Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, a masterpiece crafted by the esteemed winemaker FRANÇOISE PESCHON and skillfully nurtured by vineyard manager MICHAEL WOLF. With only 474 cases produced, this limited-edition wine embodies the epitome of excellence.

    In the glass, the Heimark Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon unveils a mesmerizing deep garnet hue, captivating the eye with its rich intensity. As you approach the glass, an enchanting bouquet unfolds, revealing savory aromas of dried sage, thyme, and bay laurel, intertwined with the earthy embrace of forest humus. Delicate floral notes of lavender and fennel pollen dance delicately, adding a touch of ethereal elegance.

    On the palate, this wine showcases an irresistible succulence derived from intensely concentrated black fruits. A symphony of sweet and savory flavors intermingle, creating a harmonious dance across your taste buds. Dark, brooding fruits intertwine with hints of black licorice, myrtle, and sandalwood spice, bestowing a captivating sense of intrigue and complexity.

    The 2018 vintage, as acclaimed by wine critic Antonio Galloni with a remarkable 98 points, embodies a unique paradox. While it is incredibly concentrated and dense, it simultaneously possesses a weightless and almost ethereal quality. Firm yet generous on the palate, this wine unveils mineral notes reminiscent of volcanic rock, elevated by a fresh mineral lift.

    Structured in a classic fashion, Heimark Cabernet Sauvignon showcases abundant tannins that promise a wine that will gracefully age for the next 25 years. The vibrant, elegant finish leaves a lasting impression, inviting you to explore the nuances of this exceptional creation.

    Overflowing with praise, this wine’s stature is undeniable. Antonio Galloni aptly summarizes the experience with a simple “wow!” while emphasizing the wine’s grandeur, inky depth, and captivating allure. It is a wine that demands attention and rewards those who seek the extraordinary.

    Immerse yourself in the magnificence of Heimark Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, a testament to the artistry of FRANÇOISE PESCHON and MICHAEL WOLF. Limited in production but boundless in its ability to enchant, this wine is a true treasure to be savored and admired.

    18 reviews for Heimark Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

    1. Joy Castro

      New Napa arrival tasting featuring 30 wines mostly from 2017, with a few 2018 whites and new releases from 2016 and 2015. Approachable and offers immediate drinking pleasure but lacks refinement, depth, and concentration. Diamond Creek Volcanic Hill 2017 and Viader 2017 were the standout wines. Detert East Block Cabernet Franc 2017 has a unique character.

    2. Kellie Coleman

      Floral and fruity notes with earthy and chocolate undertones. Strong tannins.

    3. Ray Jones

      Dark plum and currant notes, with a hint of spice. Well-rounded body. Long finish with moderate tannin. Needs a long decant.

    4. Darlene Moeller

      Napa Cabernet with black fruit, herbaceous notes, and hints of graphite, tobacco, and cassis. Requires decanting for at least 3 hours and aging for further improvement.

    5. Richard Tewksbury

      Young but promising, with dark fruit, spices, and cigar notes. Needs a long decant and will be best in 5+ years. Strong oak due to 100% new oak in inaugural vintage. Worth cellaring.

    6. Jorge Boulanger

      Dark, strong, and velvety with blackberry and plum flavors. Decant for 6 hours. Built for aging.

    7. John Capps

      Intense and savory Cabernet with forceful flavor that needs time to blossom. Aromas of black cherry, pencil lead, mocha, and roasted red pepper. Soft and ripe flavors of blackberry, tapenade, ribeye, and cocoa bean. 93-94 rating now, with upside in 2023 or later.

    8. Douglas Shaw

      Deep, dark purple magenta color. Notes of toffee, coffee, blackberry, cassis, and subtle mint chocolate on the nose. Smooth, dry palate with full tannins on the finish. Needs another year to develop.

    9. Virginia Strange

      2018 version is ripe and polished with rustic tannins. Big potential but needs a few more years.

    10. Agnes Olney

      Well-made, Bordeaux-esque Cab with notes of black cherry, blackberry, flint, sage, date, and honey gummy bear. Dry, satiny palate with modestly chalky acidity and lower intensity tannins on the longish finish. Enjoyable now, with good aging potential. Winemaker: Francoise Peschon.

    11. Phylis Sprague

      Dark, mountain fruit Calistoga wine with blackberry cassis flavors and silky tannins. A long finish that improves on day two. Ordered 3 more bottles. Hold. 97+

    12. Harold Valera

      Initial beautiful nose with herbal and earthy notes. Weird sediment on the palate, but resolved after swirling. Abundant tannins recommend decanting. At 10-12 hours, blackberries and earthy notes. Score based on 10-12 hour tasting, wait 5+ years to open next bottle.

    13. Betsy Warburton

      Great potential, quality fruit and winemaking on display. Needs more time as it has a pedestrian streak. 3-day follow-up recommended. Potential 97-98 rating in the future.

    14. Andrea Williams

      Deep purplish magenta color. Buttery dark caramel, tarry blackberry, black cherry, lavender and dandelion on the nose. Smooth, dry palate with full tannins. Needs one more year to integrate.

    15. Josephine Franklin

      Austere but fresh, lacks pleasure and fruit generosity. Wait 10 years.

    16. Warren Estrada

      Impressive wine, but needs patience. 12+ hours of air made it a well-rounded, gorgeous wine. Day 3 rating: 95+.

    17. Kevin Mclaughlin

      Beautifully balanced with notes of cherry, tobacco, citrus, and earth. Classic Napa Cab vibe. Lovely acidity and chewy tannins on a long finish. Cheers!

    18. VIN

      The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon from Heimark is unbelievably elegant, even more than it was last year. Deep, dark and racy, the 2018 possesses tremendous depth and intensity that just builds with time in the glass. Black cherry, lavender, mocha, spice and crushed rocks lend nuance to this potent Calistoga Cabernet. The 2018 is outrageously delicious. Don’t miss it.
