Winemaker's Notes

The 2002 Hewitt Vineyard wine is 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and comes from the vineyard's oldest plantings. They carefully avoided crushing the fruit while separating and discarding the stems. Using only the "free run" (wine that drains from the skin without pressing and is generally superior to press wine), Hewitt allowed fermentation to extend for more than 40 days. They aged the wine in 100% new French oak barrels, racking the wine every three months, for 19 months before bottling without fining or filtering.

There is more intensity of fruit than the previous vintage, showcasing Hewitt Vineyard's signature clove, vanilla and black cherry aromas combined with that classic "Rutherford Dust" in a bright and snappy version. Exotic plum and layers of cassis go on for a long, satisfying finish.
