"I believe Napa Valley’s 2013 vintage is the best of the past 10 years," says Winemaker Trevor Durling. "Our 2013 Hewitt Cabernet Sauvignon is powerful and muscular, with great texture and density on the palate." The expansive aromas and flavors exude sumptuous blackberry, Satsuma plum, black cherry and cassis expression, layered with nuances of bittersweet chocolate, rum raisin, roasted espresso bean and sun-warmed rose. There is also an elusive chaparral note that reminds us of an August hike in the golden California hills. This is truly a wine that speaks to both the personality of Hewitt Vineyard and the outstanding, warm and dry 2013 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.
