Hewitt displays consistent attributes that encompass both its terroir and the Cabernet Sauvignon varietal. Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon displays a violet aroma unique to this vineyard. Sumptuous black cherry, blackberry, olallieberry, Marionberrry, plum, cassis and currant fruit are complemented by Rutherford's classic cocoa, bittersweet chocolate, mocha, forest floor, coffee beans, toffee, dried herbs, allspice and cigar. Big in character yet elegant in style, this wine can be enjoyed young or savored after years in the cellar with equal pleasure.
"Firm mineral, cedar and dusty earth notes frame the ripe currant, plum and blackberry scents. Full-bodied, intense and concentrated, gaining depth and nuance on the long, potent finish. Drink now through 2022."
"A first-class Cabernet, this is dry, richly tannic and mouthwateringly tart in acidity. It shows savory blackberry and cherry flavors, while the oak gives it an umami tang of
smoke. Drink now-2016."
