Cabernet Sauvignon

750 ML


Product Description

The inaugural release of Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was the 2001 vintage in 2004. Hewitt Cabernet Sauvignon opens with an entrancing violet aroma, then unfolds its richness in the mouth, with juicy ripe plum, rich olive, and round tobacco fruit, graced by just a hint of oak graham, which serves to further frame the fruit and push it forward. The wine is fleshy and well integrated, and thus a bit on the subtle side.


Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Region: Rutherford

Region Description:

The region of Rutherford is a large alluvial fan north of Oakville that spreads north and south in the middle of Napa Valley, CA. This sloping mass of sediments deposited by the river gave birth to some of the most famous and historic wineries in Napa. Composed of gravelly, sandy clay loam soil, in recent years you can't hear much about Rutherford without the fraise "Rutherford Dust", most likely do to the warm growing temperatures. Rutherford warm weather is well suited for the Cabernet Sauvignon which is the main wine of the region.
