2013 Vintage

95 Points - The Wine Advocate.
"This is a brilliant wine from this well-placed vineyard in Rutherford, sitting right on the so-called Rutherford Bench, with a history of vines having been planted there as far back as 1880. There are 2,646 cases of this wine, which is a blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot that was aged 21 months in 85% new French oak."   - Robert Parker

2011 Vintage

The persistently cool 2011 vintage decreased yields in Napa Valley, but the remaining grapes ripened slowly, achieving delicious flavors and ripe tannins from the long hangtime. For the second consecutive year, Napa Valley’s harvest was one of the latest on record. A wet winter and spring continued into mid-June, causing shatter during bloom and reducing the crop. While produced in small quantity, our Hewitt Cabernet Sauvignon proves that this temperate vintage produced many exceptional wines with excellent structure and flavor complexity.

2012 Vintage

94 Points, Wine Spectator
"Combines power with finesse, offering a rich core of dark berry, mocha, chocolate, dusty oak and loamy earth. Gains depth and refinement on the finish, where the flavors linger pleasantly. Drink now through 2030." –Jim Laube
