Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Rutherford Reserve 2007

Winemaker's 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.

Hewitt Vineyard:
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.

WA 93pts. - WS 92pts. - Winemaker Notes - Dark fruit, mineral and floral notes meld with bittersweet chocolate and toffee from oak aging. The enticing violet note, which we don t see in other Rutherford vineyards, is part of Hewitt Vineyard's unique personality. The muscular tannins carry the flavors through a long finish, while balanced acidity gives a vibrancy that is sometimes lacking in powerful Cabs.
