Hewitt 2012 Double Plus Cabernet Sauvignon

The relaxed, high-quality 2012 harvest was a winemaker’s dream. The ideal growing season—well-timed rains, no frost during budbreak, and perfect weather for bloom, berry-set and ripening—was textbook Napa Valley. Long stretches of sunny days coupled with foggy nights gave our 2012 wines exceptionally rich, expressive flavors and impeccable balance. We had no weather pressures from either pending rains or excessive heat to rush the harvest. Instead we had the luxury of waiting until the grapes reached absolutely perfect maturity.

Hewitt 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

Our 2014 Hewitt Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful and dense wine, with phenomenal texture and opulence on the palate. The expansive aromas and flavors exude sumptuous blackberry, black cherry, bramble berry and cassis, layered with nuances of rum raisin, roasted espresso bean and crème brûlée. There are also hints of anise and an elusive chaparral note that reminds us of an August hike in the golden California hills. This wine is multi-dimensional with incredible layers, depth, persistence and complexity. This is a wine that truly exemplifies both the personality of Hewitt Vineyard and the outstanding 2014 vintage. Hewitt Cabernet Sauvignon is very age-worthy, however, if you can’t wait to drink it, we suggest decanting to allow the flavors to evolve and reveal their great complexity and elegance.
