Hewitt Vineyard Rutherford Cabernet 2015
Last vintage, Hewitt Rutherford Cabernet received some great acclaim – 98 points. And as you might imagine, it sold out quickly and then doubled in price.
This year, I didn’t want to let that happen again – so I grabbed as much as I could before it was rated and got it at an outstanding, rock-bottom price. Trust me, the ’15 is just as magnificent as the ’14. And if you do trust me, I have one heck of a deal for you! You won’t find find this prestige Cab for a lower price.
Here’s last year’s acclaim:
“The 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 one 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, decanting is suggested to allow the flavors to evolve and reveal their great complexity and elegance.”
“The purity of this wine is crazy. Blue fruits with aromas of oyster shell and Indian ink. Full-bodied yet tight and reserved. A fabulous finish of ultra-fine tannins and focused fruit. This is a superb young Napa cab. Give it three to four years of bottle age. New Napa cult?” – James Suckling
“Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet-purple color and fragrant nose of cedar, violets, potpourri and crushed blueberries over a core of black currants and plums, plus a hint of dusty earth. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals impressive energy, with tons of perfumed black fruit and earthy layers supported by firm, grainy tannins, finishing long and lively.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
