Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (scuffed labels) 2014
This wine is multi-dimensional with incredible layers, depth, persistence, and complexity. This is a wine that truly exemplifies both the personality of Hewitt Vineyard and the outstanding 2014 vintage. Hewitt Cabernet Sauvignon is very age-worthy, however, if you can’t wait to drink it, decanting is suggested to allow the flavors to evolve and reveal their great complexity and elegance.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
The historic Hewitt Vineyard resides on the famed Rutherford Bench, a narrow ribbon of gravel-rich alluvial soils on the western side of the Napa Valley that has - since the late 1800s - produced California's best Cabernet Sauvignon.
William Hewitt purchased this property in 1962 and received guidance in planting the vineyard from legendary Beaulieu Vineyard (BV) winemaker André Tchelistcheff. BV purchased Cabernet Sauvignon from Hewitt Vineyard and included it in its top wines for many years. When Hewitt Vineyard was offered for sale in 2000, Chalone Wine Group President Tom Selfridge, who began his career at Beaulieu and knew first-hand the vineyard's extraordinary quality, jumped at the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to add this treasure to the company's portfolio.
Today, Hewitt Vineyard produces only estate Cabernet Sauvignon from its extraordinary property. Through this exclusive focus, Hewitt is a leader in Rutherford's winemaking renaissance.
