Description

Description

This single-vineyard bottling showcases the stellar fruit of Hewitt Vineyard on Napa Valley's Rutherford bench. We harvest each vineyard section separately, as it reaches full ripeness, and adjust our winemaking to its character. Partial fermentation in new French oak barrels integrates tannins and develops plush texture. A high percentage of new French oak barrels complements the intensity of dark-fruit flavors.

Awards & Accolades

    “The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is fabulous. It captures all the intensity of this site, but with a lighter hand and more acid-driven freshness than in the past, both of which work so well to balance things out. Inky dark fruit, chocolate, new leather, spice and licorice all build with time in the glass.” - Antonio Galloni, March 2021

    “A big, solid red with blackcurrant, blackberry and hazelnut character. It’s structured and tightly wound with dense, creamy tannins that provide form and intensity. A little tight at the end. Give it two or three years to open a little more. Try in 2024.” - James Suckling, June 2021

Vineyard & Winemaking Details

Trevor Durling - Winemaker

Trevor grew up in nearby Sonoma County, one of the wine hubs of Northern California. Wine was a staple at his family dinner table, and he enrolled in the Viticulture and Enology program at the University of California, Davis. After an internship at Sonoma-Cutrer in 2003 and two consecutive harvest internships making sparkling wine at Gloria Ferrer, Trevor joined Moon Mountain Vineyard, a small, well-regarded organic vineyard in Sonoma, shortly after his graduation from UC Davis. In March of 2010, Trevor joined the winemaking team at Hewitt Vineyard and Provenance Vineyards and was appointed senior winemaker in 2015.

"From a winemaking standpoint, we have access to some of the best fruit in Napa Valley, not just from our estate in Rutherford, but also from Carneros in the south all the way up to Calistoga in the north. Our job is to make sure that each wine is balanced, complex, exciting and representative of its terroir."
