Though biased as our family began tilling soil for raisins instead of gold, this is a glorious wine, between 94-95 at least. The 05 is getting hard to find, but the 06 is a thoroughly, risk-free offering with anything needing a stoney, earth and rich flavored Cabernet. It is on the Rutherford, but somehow always presenting with a bit more body than, say, one of the neighboring very famous vineyards on the Bench. Risk a few bucks, buy a bottle. Then, buy a case a lay some down if you can somehow forget these jewels are in your cellar. If the Grand Duke of Luxembourg came to dinner, you would be proud to serve this as the main course first wine.

This wine is quite elegant considering the rich, concentrated flavors of ripe currant, black cherry and plum. The finish will linger on your palate with hints of toffee and expresso.

The historic Hewitt Vineyard resides on the famed Rutherford Bench, a narrow ribbon of gravel-rich alluvial soils on the western side of the Napa Valley that has - since the late 1800s - produced California's best Cabernet Sauvignon. Today, Hewitt Vineyard produces only estate Cabernet Sauvignon from this extraordinary fifty-eight acre vineyard. The wine is cold-soaked then fermented with extended skin contact of up to fifty days. Aged for 22 months in French oak, about half new, before bottling. Wine Spectator scored it 94 points and said "Intense and concentrated, big and expressive, with layers of ripe currant, plum, sage, pencil lead and black cherry, all flowing rather seamlessly. Tightly focused, this is rich without being heavy, ending with a long, persistent finish." not sponsored by or affiliated with The Wine Spectator or The Wine Advocate This item excluded from XTYPAK and any other discounts or offers beyond the 15% case discount.

LAST CALL Special: Hewitt Cabernet - 20% Discount + FREE SHIPPING � WINE SPECTATOR price: $85/bottle� � NEW Special Offer: $68/bottle� WINE SPECTATOR 94 Rating:� "Intense and concentrated, big and expressive, with layers of ripe currant, plum, sage, pencil lead and black cherry, all flowing rather seamlessly. Tightly focused, this is rich without being heavy, ending with a long, persistent finish. Drink now through 2014. 94 points." -JL� (12/4/08 Update):� Quick alert here to confirm we've negotiated a VERY special deal to secure the remaining bottles of Hewitt's prized 2005 Cabernet at an unprecedented 20% discount if you would like to re-order a few more bottles before we sell out. Last month the Wine Spectator rated this wine "Outstanding 94" points featured Hewitt Cabernet alongside their other "top scoring" Cabernets which all sell for $125 - $400 per bottle! We love Hewitt because it's so bold, ultra-smooth (like drinking liquid velvet) and remarkably age-worthy. Only 12 cases remain so order now and we'll throw in Free Shipping on 6+ bottle purchases.� WINE SPECTATOR UPDATE:� The Wine Spectator's annual Cabernet report just hit newsstands and we've got some good news for you. Turn to page 57 and you'll see the Hewitt Cabernet 2005 featured alongside two other very rare, highly rated Cabernet. Then, turn page 65 and you'll see a chart featuring the top 20 new Cabernet and you'll Hewitt Cabernet proudly featured among a plethora of Napa's most sought after Cabernet. The average price of these wines is over $150 per bottle making Hewitt the "bargain of the vintage" at less than HALF PRICE! To celebrate this exciting news, we can offer Porthos members up to one case of Hewitt 2005 and we'll throw in Free Shipping on any orders of 6+ bottles of this tremendously tasty wine.
