    Description

    Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine is a single-vineyard, limited-edition wine that highlights their estate's character without overwhelming it. They harvest the grapes at peak maturity, ferment them for optimal extraction, age them slowly in new French oak, and bottled 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, this Cabernet Sauvignon may be enjoyed in its youth or savored after years in the cellar.

    Reflecting the fabulous vintage, Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 offers abundant, complex dark-fruit expression; ripe tannins and impeccable balance. Its yin-yang qualities of being dominant—yet refined, soft and approachable—speak to the terroir of Hewitt Vineyard and gentle winemaking. The wine's dense core of blackberry, Satsuma plum, black Bing cherry, and cassis reveals gorgeous notes of bittersweet chocolate, violet, and sarsaparilla. The firm entry turns plush on the expansive mid palate, while focused acidity brightens the intense dark-fruit flavors. Warm ginger, hazelnut, and mocha notes from new French oak barrels permeate the seductive aromas, opulently textured flavors, and broad, lingering fruit finish. This intensely flavored, full-bodied wine pairs elegantly with boldly flavored entrees, aged cheeses, or whatever excites your palate. Enjoy!
