On the celebrated Rutherford Bench of the Napa Valley, the historic Hewitt Vineyard has been producing highly sought-after wines 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 highest quality fruit from the vineyard for this limited-edition bottling. The Hewitt Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful and dense wine, with unique texture and opulence on the palate. While drinking beautifully upon release, its true complexity and elegance shines when aged 10 to 30 years.
