2004 Hewitt Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1030285 93 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark As Cabernet goes, this highly extracted and very gutsy working stands with the most bombastic in terms of sheer richness and size, yet it does not sell its soul to unbridled ripeness. Its potent aromas of dark berries, cassis, loam and caramel are echoed in character by its concentrated curranty flavors, and its consider-able tannins are never so tough as to overshadow its essential message of varietal fruit. A big wine by any and all standards, it will pair best with appropriately hearty foods and should grow for a good many years. *Two Stars* Inner quote mark (12/2007)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Tight, firm, concentrated and well focused, with a complex range of earthy currant, herb, anise, sage and cedary oak. The finish pulls it all together, with a wonderful aftertaste that homes in on the fruit and tannins. (JL) Inner quote mark (6/2007)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Beautiful aromas of creme de cassis and kirsch-like fruit jump from the glass of Hewitt’s 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon. From a vineyard located on the Rutherford Bench, this wine was made by the highly respected Napa winemaker, Tom Rinaldi. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by classic notes of red and black currants along with plenty of complexity, purity and richness, and a full-bodied mouthfeel. As are most 2004s, this wine is very approachable and should drink well for another decade. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2014)
