Hartwell Estate Vineyards Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Here at Hartwell Estate Vineyards, our Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is the most cherished wine that we make. Only the best-of-the-best fruit from the property make it into our flagship Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemaker Benoit Touquette chooses the specific vineyard blocks and barrels that make up this wine. The result is a truly remarkable Cabernet Sauvignon that offers early drinkability and intense complexity that will evolve over time.

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

This was produced entirely from their Estate Vineyard; 600 cases were bottled. The operative words here are dark and brooding. Everything about this Cabernet from the blackberry laced nose to the rich palate stuffed with black cherry, dark chocolate and more all lead in that direction. Blueberry, chocolate sauce and red earth are all present on the lengthy finish. This is a bold and bodacious Cabernet Sauvignon which is balanced by firm acid.
