K&L Notes

K&L's notes - The Hewitt Vineyard is devoted exclusively to the production of estate Cabernet Sauvignon from an extraordinary Napa Valley property. This 2001 (the inaugural public release), opens with an aroma of violets, then unfolds its richness in the mouth, with juicy ripe plum, rich olive, and round tobacco fruit, graced by just a hint of oak graham, which serves to further frame the fruit and push it forward. The wine is fleshy and well integrated, and thus a bit on the subtle side. According to winemaker Tom Rinaldi. "We already have plenty of in-your-face wines. I didn't want that. I want a polite wine, one that is neither aggressive nor abrasive. You get tired of all that unbridled energy of some of these Cabernets that are undisciplined, a bit over-the-top. Ours is an intellectual wine, one that requires a little effort on your part to fully appreciate. It is complex enough so that there's lots to uncover."
