Charles Heintz Vineyards Pinot Noir Valentina 2014

Pinot Noir aficionados, SIT UP and get ready! Incredible!

Not Heitz, and definitely not ketchup, either!! No, savvy pinot lovers, this is the legendary Heintz Vineyard on the Sonoma Coast -- we are talking about dead serious, melon-twistingly amazing Pinot Noir, people, whose grapes go into some of the finest pinot producers on Earth --- FLOWERS, DUMOL, WILLIAMS-SELYEM, LITTORAI and many more. WHAT a price!! Wicked!

It’s super-rare to even SEE these wines, so how we got a hold of a bit is going to stay tightly under wraps, but…MAN! Serious stuff --- now, you KNOW these guys are going to keep the best stuff for themselves (really, wouldn’t you?), and you will know it the moment it hits your quivering-with-anticipation lips, oh yes. The FLOW of pure, gorgeous, lovely, perfumey, intense, freshly crushed cherry/cranberry fruit, seamless and lip-smacking freshness, with lavender, rose, and a dash of toasty spice, but wonderfully concentrated with no heaviness. BOOM pow pow, you KNOW you’re into something special. As we said, AMAZING to get a little bit of this, please don’t miss --- this is special occasion wine!! While it lasts that is!!

About The Producer

Following in the footsteps of his father, Charlie Heintz began farming Heintz Ranch in 1984. In 2004, their ultra-premium label, “Heintz” was introduced. These small-production wines are made with 100% Heintz Ranch fruit, farmed for lower yields and are grown primarily on the hillside areas of Heintz Ranch.

In addition to the limited production their wine each year, the remaining Heintz Ranch fruit goes to selected high-end wineries in Sonoma and Napa. Charlie prides himself on working closely with each winemaker to deliver quality fruit, consistently, each and every year.
