Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Grown Rutherford 750ML 2009      
Sku: 14595

Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a single-vineyard, limited-edition wine that highlights the character of our estate without overwhelming it. We harvest the grapes at peak maturity, ferment them for optimal extraction, age them slowly in new French oak and bottle without filtration. The resulting wine has deep black cherry and currant fruit complemented by classic Rutherford expression of cocoa, cedar and black olive. Impressive and elegant, Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon may be enjoyed in its youth or savored after years in the cellar.

Dense, tight and chewy, this rustic, backwards 2009 shows promise. The compact dark berry, plum and cherry fruit has a touch of licorice. Ends with drying tannins. Drink now through 2022. 2,945 cases made. - JL

Wine maker notes
Blend: 99% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Petit Verdot The 2004 Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford shows classic "Rutherford dust" flavors of milk chocolate and cocoa powder with maple, toffee and cigar box aromas. The wine is fruit-driven with lush black-cherry and blackberry jam notes. It has great length and finishes a little rough in its youth, but gently so. This lovely wine is unique in that this vintage represents the entire Hewitt Vineyard, not just one or two blocks.
