Intense and full-blown, rich and concentrated, with a rustic, earthy edge to the dried currant, sage and underbrush notes. The depth and dimension of the flavors are cloaked in chewy tannins, requiring time to unfold. Best from 2010 through 2016. 5,514 cases made. -JL Hewitt's 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is a large-scaled, structured effort displaying plenty of dusty, earthy notes intermixed with chocolate, licorice, spice box, black currant, and new oak smells. With an opaque purple color as well as terrific depth and intensity, this seriously-endowed 2006 will require some cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2035. Petty tannic now, which accentuates the dryness, creating an austere palate impression. So it's one for the cellar, but will it age? Yes. It's dramatically rich in blackberries, black currants and blueberries, with a voluptuous edge of dark chocolate. Best 2011-2015. - S.H.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Rated 92 Intense and full-blown, rich and concentrated, with a rustic, earthy edge to the dried currant, sage and underbrush notes. The depth and dimension of the flavors are cloaked in chewy tannins, requiring time to unfold. Best from 2010 through 2016. Wine Tasting Notes The intense, dark ruby color of the Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon leads your senses to the opulent aromas and flavors. Deep black-cherry, blackberry and plum character is richly layered with nuances of black licorice, dark chocolate, clove spice and cedar forest. The complex, expansive flavors are framed by cocoa powder tannins (classic Rutherford Dust) that give a plush, yet muscular, structure. The smooth, graceful finish lingers with hints of toffee and espresso.
