Magnum bottles allow Hewitt to age and develop slowly over the course of years, if not decades. For collectors, or those looking for a gifts, magnums are uniquely memorable.
This single-vineyard bottling showcases the stellar fruit of Hewitt Vineyard on Napa Valley’s Rutherford bench. We harvest each vineyard section separately, as it reaches full ripeness, and adjust our winemaking to its character. Partial fermentation in new French oak barrels integrates tannins and develops plush texture. A high percentage of new French oak barrels complements the intensity of dark-fruit flavors. This deeply flavored, full-bodied wine pairs elegantly with boldly flavored entrées, aged cheeses or whatever excites your palate.
Barrel Aging: 21 months, 100% French Oak (85% New Barrels)
Varietal Composition: 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot
Production: 2,000 cases
Our 2015 Hewitt Cabernet Sauvignon is big and bold, with incredible depth, richness and opulence on the palate. The lush aromas and flavors explode into sumptuous blackberry, blueberry, black cherry and cassis, followed by hints of roasted espresso bean, dark mocha, and rum-raisin. Layered, intense, and inky, this wine is multi-dimensional with incredible persistence and density. Sure to age for many years, this is a wine that truly exemplifies both the personality of Hewitt Vineyard and the outstanding, concentrated depth and elegance of the 2015 vintage. Hewitt Cabernet Sauvignon is meant to be age-worthy, however, if you can’t wait to drink it, we suggest decanting to allow the flavors to evolve and reveal their complexity and elegance.
