Our 2008 Hewitt Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon brims with sumptuous layers of crème de cassis, brambly olallieberry, black cherry and satsuma plum. Nuances of black licorice, chocolate, rum raisin, mineral and sweet vanilla-oak and clove spices weave through the dark-fruit expression of the aromas and then persist on the rich, long black-cherry finish. “This wine’s dynamic tannins are built for distance,” says Winemaker Tom Rinaldi. “We fermented part of the wine in new French oak barrels to produce plusher, more integrated tannins, while keeping its great structure and aging potential.” Tom selected rows of his favorite vines within Hewitt Vineyard to make this single-vineyard bottling.

"Firm mineral, cedar and dusty earth notes frame the ripe currant, plum and blackberry scents. Full-bodied, intense and concentrated, gaining depth and nuance on the ling, potent finish. Drink now through 2022." —J.L.
