2001 Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Grown Rutherford Napa Valley

Wine Description

(From 2007 Vintage) Dark fruit, mineral and floral notes meld with bittersweet chocolate and toffee from oak aging. The enticing violet note, which we don't see in other Rutherford vineyards, is part of Hewitt Vineyard's unique personality. The muscular tannins carry the flavors through a long finish, while balanced acidity gives a vibrancy that is sometimes lacking in powerful Cabs.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2006 Vintage) With intense layers of dark fruit, bittersweet chocolate, black licorice, clove spice, mineral and cedar, this is one of Napa Valley's most voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignons. The palate is rich and complex, packed with sweet black cherry, plum and blackberry character that tones down the muscular entry. Malted cocoa powder tannins (classic Rutherford Dust) frame the expansive flavors, enhancing the wine's plush, opulent texture. The elegant, fruit-imbued finish lingers with espresso, toffee and nutmeg.
