Nope! No mistakes! Just JUMP on this one - truly amazing! Cabernet people, Heir Apparent is the hottest new producer in some time (check out those scores!) and we’re lucky to have a little “insider” status before the prices go truly crazy. In just a few vintages, it is spearheaded by ambitious Dwight Bonewell. Through his vision, Dwight has created an instant star, with access to vineyards close to Cakebread and Scarecrow, to drop a few names!

We stand here, dumbfounded and ready to start packing boxes for you. ONLY 23 CASES!


95 Jeb Dunnuck -
Unquestionably my favorite in the lineup, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Heir Apparent has a Pauillac-like bouquet of blackcurrants, freshly sharpened lead pencils, tobacco, crushed stone, and new leather. Playing in the medium to full-bodied end of the spectrum, it has a seamless, elegant texture, good (maybe not great) concentration, notable purity of fruit, and a great finish. While it’s not a blockbuster, it shines for its complexity and terrific overall balance and just has loads of character. If drinking any time soon, give bottles a solid hour in the decanter. It should evolve for 15-20 years.
