About This Wine
The intense, dark ruby color of the 2005 Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon leads your senses to the opulent aromas and flavors. Deep black-cherry, blackberry and plum character is richly layered with nuances of black licorice, dark chocolate, clove spice and cedar forest. The complex, expansive flavors are framed by cocoa powder tannins (classic Rutherford Dust) that give a plush, yet muscular, structure. The smooth, graceful finish lingers with hints of toffee and espresso.

Ratings: 94 Points, Wine Spectator. "Concentrated, with layers of ripe currant, plum, sage, pencil lead and black cherry. Rich without being heavy." 95 Points, Connisseurs Guide to California Wine. "In its brief history, Hewitt has already made a name for itself as a producer of big, massively extracted Cabernets and, while this most recent version adheres to the norms of muscle and mass, it does so with a little more polish than shown in the past. Very deep, very ripe and very full-bodied, it is bursting with wonderfully concentrated, curranty fruit and is further lifted by loads of sweet oak. Its sense of polish makes it remarkably approachable even now, but the wise choice is cellaring, and we would counsel five or six years of patience."
