Hewitt Vineyard


2003 Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley


Drink Date 2018 - 2043

Robert M. Parker, Jr. 90+ - Still tightly knit with good acidity, terrific purity, a boatload of creme de cassis and kirsch-like fruit, it is full-bodied, backward, brooding and stunning. A long finish is especially impressive. However, this wine is extremely young and requires patience, although it is certainly not infanticide to drink it now. Forget it for 5 years and drink it over the following 20-25 years.


This historic vineyard planted in 1880 on the so-called “Rutherford dust/Rutherford bench” is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Built for the long haul, this 2003 is one of the youngest wines of the vintage I tasted.
