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. – Description from dvoristanac

  • Mjet - these days it's hard to think of a CA or WA Cab that will improve but that isn't very good out of the chute. That would include the entire Cab family - wines made as monovarietal bottlings or as blends of Merlot, Cab Franc, Cab Sauv, Malbec, Carmenere, etc. If you have a wine that's going to improve, it's likely to be pretty good on relea...

I'm going a bit off course this year as I am smoking my turkey so I'm probably going to go heavy on Syrah rather than Pinot Noir. But that could change based on input from the guests.First off I'll likely pop a 2010 Copain Baker Ranch Syrah as it shows quite Pinot-like and I ha... Read More
