On the celebrated Rutherford Bench of the Napa Valley, the historic Hewitt Vineyard® has been producing highly sought-after winegrapes since it was first planted in the late 19th century. At the outset of the 21st century, Winemaker Tom Rinaldi began grooming the vineyard for the release of its first-ever single-estate Cabernet Sauvignon. Today, Tom’s protégé, winemaker Trevor Durling, chooses only the choicest fruit from the vineyard for this limited-edition bottling.
