2006 Hewitt Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1048943 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Hewitt's 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is a large-scaled, structured effort displaying plenty of dusty, earthy notes intermixed with chocolate, licorice, spice box, black currant, and new oak smells. With an opaque purple color as well as terrific depth and intensity, this seriously-endowed 2006 will require some cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2035. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2009)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark About what you would expect from prime Rutherford Cabernet terrain, this exhibits elegance, weight and finesse, with pure currant, kirsch and blackberry flavors shaded by herb and anise notes and ending with loamy, fine-grained tannins. (JL, Web Only-2016) Inner quote mark

90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark From a 58-acre vineyard just north of the Rubicon Estate, this classic Rutherford cabernet has bosky cherry flavors and a dusting of chocolate richness over its tannin. While there are some green notes to the tannin, the texture is saturated, the finish cool. For roast lamb. Inner quote mark (4/2010)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Pretty tannic now, which accentuates the dryness, creating an austere palate impression. So it's one for the cellar, but will it age? Yes. It's dramatically rich in blackberries, black currants and blueberries, with a voluptous edge of dark chocolate. *Cellar Selection* Inner quote mark (12/2009)

K&L Notes

All Cabernet fruit from Hewitt Vineyard in Rutherford is aged for nineteen months in 50% new French oak. Layers of currant and black cherry, clove, chocolate, and mineral build anticipation on the nose, which is rich with blackberry, plum, cocoa and Rutherford dust. Sweet flavors of caramel and espresso on the finish, with firm tannins that that match the boldness of the fruit.
