2015 Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (there's 4% Petit Verdot in the blend) spent 21 months in 85% new French oak. It’s a ripe, super-rich effort that boasts tons of plum, blackcurrants, incense, and spice-laced aromas and flavors. A classic 2015 with its ripe, sweet, intense fruit, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, rounded, sweet tannins, and a big, mouthfilling texture. Drink it over the coming 15-20 years.

2015 Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Double Plus

All Cabernet aged 21 months in 90% new French oak, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Double Plus ratchets up the price and offers a slightly more pure, seamless style. Another super-intense, rich, even decadent wine from this estate, it's loaded with notions of blackcurrants, spiced plums, incense, Asian spice, and licorice, with some savory tobacco and dried earth notes with time in the glass. Deep, rich, full-bodied, and stacked on the palate, this beauty stays light and weightless on the palate and is a joy to drink. It's another classic, textbook 2015 to drink over the coming 15-20 years.
