Hewitt is an up-and-coming Cult Cabernet from Napa Valley's Rutherford Bench. From Tom Rinaldi, former winemaker at Duckhorm, this should be on every Napa Cab collector's short list. Get the new release while it's available!
97 Points James Suckling:" I love the character of crushed berries, dried dirt and sliced raw meat. Decadent. Full body. Round and creamy tannins in texture. So polished and beautiful. It goes on for minutes. 96% cabernet sauvignon with petit verdot. Give this two or three years to come together. Better after 2021."
94 Points Jeb Dunnuck:"Starting with the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, this ripe, sexy red comes all from Rutherford and has a big nose of sweet blueberries, plums, dark chocolate, tobacco, and spice. It's not for those looking for lightweight aromas and flavors, yet it wears its ripe fruit well, showing full-bodied richness, good purity, and a lively feel on the palate. Drink this hedonistic blockbuster over the coming 10-15 years."
