#4 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013
The resulting wine has deep black cherry and currant fruit complemented by classic Rutherford expression of cocoa, cedar and black olive. Impressive and elegant, Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon may be enjoyed in its youth or savored after years in the cellar.
"Deliciously pure, rich and deep, featuring tiers of spicy red berry, blackberry, and red and black licorice flavors, with pretty wilted rose scents and a long seamless finish that slowly reveals an underlying tannic grip."
"The less expensive 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford is also of extremely high quality. Copious aromas of black currants, black raspberries, spring flowers and a touch of earth emerge from this stunningly rich, full-bodied, impressive Cabernet. Consume it over the next 15+ years. "
