Bob Hartwell's passion for wine stems from his decades as an avid collector. Bob, a fourth generation Californian, has over thirty years of success in the aerospace and plumbing industries. As a successful manufacturer of quality products, Bob has never been a stranger to striving for quality over quantity at any cost. He has always known that the best quality materials result in the best quality products. Bob's obsession with producing the best didn't stop at the manufacturing plant. Bob knew that fulfilling the dream of owning his own vineyard meant finding the best place to grow the best Cabernet Sauvignon. With the help of a respected wine consultant, he found the property he had been searching for. The unplanted hillside in the Stag's Leap District, now Hartwell Estate, was the birthplace of his dream. Dick Grace shared his Bouche Clone from Grace Family Vineyards, and collaborated with Bob on Hartwell's very first production. In 1990 after 22 months in new French oak barrels, the wine, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, was released with explosive success. This established the tradition of quality and style that continues to distinguish Hartwell wines. In addition to making great wine, Blanca and Bob Hartwell are dedicated to the tradition of charitable giving. Their ongoing philanthropic efforts are instrumental to organizations that improve the lives of children. Read less

Drank it on Easter with steaks. Incredible balance of fruit and tannins, rich round mouth feel, long finish. It opened up beautifully over about an hour and a half. Delicious. Notes of fig were quite pronounced.

Wine & Spirits ReviewA big, showy wine, this begins to gain definition and structure as it takes on air. With blackberry and plum richness along with all the chocolate of its oak, it's a red hovering on the edge of syrup, succeeding in the late-harvest style many Napa cabernet producers have adopted.

he 1993 exhibits an elegant, more laid back style than several previous vintages. The deep ruby/purple color is followed by copious amounts of toasty, smoky new oak, and attractive currant aromas. The wine possesses sweet, ripe fruit, medium body, mo... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
