Reflecting the fabulous 2012 vintage, Hewitt Cabernet Sauvignon offers abundant, complex dark-fruit expression; ripe tannins and impeccable balance. Its yin-yang qualities of being powerful—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 midpalate, 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.
