The site that is now Hewitt Vineyard was first planted to vines in 1880, when Dennis Hanrahan bought the parcel bordering Gustave Niebaum’s Inglenook (now Rubicon Estate). The Hanrahan Ranch survived Prohibition by shipping grapes east to home winemakers. In 1962, William A. Hewitt, head of Deere & Company (John Deere), bought the vineyard and replanted it to Cabernet Sauvignon with the help of famed wine master André Tchelistcheff.

Sumptuously intense fruit, fine toasted oak, and lush, smooth tannins all come together in this dramatic wine. It's a wonder of modern Napa Valley, offering delicious cassis, chocolate and cherry flavors, with enough acidity for balance... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2002 Hewitt Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
