Dark purple-garnet in appearance with a nose of grape Hawaiian Punch, some spicy plums, and ripe blackberries; very attractive on the nose for sure. On the palate, getting mostly peppered plums, anise, and a spicy cedar blackfruits. Nice long finish and still has a few more years to it. I found this on the clearance bin out of all places, maybe cos the label's all dirty and the outer part of the bottle not looking clean. But all I care about is what's inside the bottle, and I definitely got my money's worth.

2005 Hewitt exhibits a bright lively color and nose. I popped and poured, but this wine requires a serious decanting. Upon opening this wine was light on the palate and showed more of a dainty, finesse- feminine style. A Cab with nice structure, elegance with tolerable acidity still. This vintage is holding up very well.

Day 2, a much better showing. Red-dark berries, fruit, tobacco, traces of Rutherford dust and medium tannins. A very pleasant wine at the end. 90.6 Points

Super scrumptus. Good fruit balanced with supple acid and tannin - just enough to be a really nice compliment with triple cream cheeses.

Friends brought this to our 7/18/15 Kobe Prime Rib dinner. It had a rich, smooth and harmonious bouquet of cassis, black cherry, vanilla, cedar, sage, herb and spice aromas. The palate was rich, smooth and structured with flavors of cassis, black cherry, vanilla, burnt toast sage and spice. My score was 93+. Our group’s average score was 94.0 points.

Friends brought this to our 7/18/15 Kobe Prime Rib dinner. It had a rich, round and fragrant bouquet of cassis, black cherry, anise, licorice, herb and spice aromas. The palate was rich, powerful, and dry with flavors that followed the nose. My score was 93+. Our group’s average score was 94.0 points.

Not very complex on the nose. On the palate, cassis, cocoa, a hint of violet, and strawberry. This is drinking well now with a couple hours decanting.

Beautiful, powerful yet elegant. Black cherries and currants with a hint of cassis on the finish.

Double decanted. Tasted blind. Still fairly heavy on the oak. Not really my style. Soft acidity and didn't pair so well even with beef tenderloin...more of a cocktail wine. Visible alcohol, and still very tannic. Purchased at winery and like the other wines tonight stored at cellar temp since purchase.

Wonderful complexity and body. Tannins still a little robust. Decanted an hour to expose layers of black cherries, toast, mint, figs, licorice and spices. Should improve over the next few years. Glad we have more in the cellar.

Popped and poured on day one but it was tight and didn’t open up at all. Day 2: Nice legs and ripe rich color, judging by the nose and appearance it looked to be primed and ready to go. On the palate, a core of dark berry, mocha, dusty chocolate, oak and acidic. An elegant Cab, with all the elements of a good wine are in place, but this Cab will need considerable time to develop as it is still reserved and inhibited. I have been in their club for about a year. Unfortunately, like some other wineries, Hewitt has increased the price a bit too much for me. Not enough bang for the buck, so time to part ways. 90. 4 Points.

DAY 2+ - Surprise, what a difference! Deep, dark, black cherry and currant, powdered coco/ Rutherford dust, sweet cedar, pencil shavings. There is a nice elegance to this Cab and depth. I discern positive potential for an even better score as there is a lot happening on the palate. I have not experienced such a drastic change ever in a wine until this one. A long decanting is a must. It’s exciting to anticipate the future of this wine. A real metamorphosis! 92.4 Points

Opened in a restaurant with limited time in the decanter. Still needed to open up and could use a few more years in the bottle. Earthy with notes of tobacco. Fruit was masked early on and started to appear as the bottle was finishing an hour later.

tasted with 2005 Meerlust, 2006 Silver Oak: This was #1 - probably should age another 3 years to reach peak. Very complex, excellent combination of bold fruit , tannin and acid.

This might be the perfect California Cabernet drinking at its peak. Great deep purple, fantastic black and blue fruits. Blessed with Rutherford dust and a deft hand from Tom, the winemaker. Tannins are fully integrated and provide for a long, long finish. Please taste now. It's amazing. Enjoy!

Part of a ten person Cabernet wine dinner - we had (in order): 2011 Paul Jaboulet Aîné Hermitage Blanc Chevalier de Sterimberg , 2009 Soos Creek Champoux Vineyard, 2007 Andrew Will Sorella, 2007 Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, 2009 Lewelling Cabernet Savuginon Wright Vineyard, 2010 Larkmead Cabernet Solari , and 2006 Bodegas El Nido Jumilla El Nido. All the reds were opened 45 minutes prior to our pouring the first one, and all but the Soos Creek were decanted. By the time we reached the El Nido, it had been in the decanter for more than 90 minutes.

Certainly a very nice wine, but it was a little soft, round and short in the finish, in comparison to the other reds of the evening. Given the vintage, I was expecting more.

Tremendous wine. Great Rutherford dust on the nose. 10 years old and transition happening from that dense cabernet flavor to a very balanced, nuanced wine with brilliant secondary notes including blackberry, leather, and luxury sedan tannins that seamlessly keep the finish going forever.

Sliding into old age. Not the same punch as before, but matured into a well rounded and balanced cab. Color has slight fade, lighter purple. Nose provides peppery and olive overtones. Then the flavor goes deep and intense, beef, leather, the whole cow. Maturing nicely. Enjoy.

Seemed to be holding back a little. Lighter in color. Strawberries and raspberries are very dominant. The alcohol hurts the finish just enough you can get the full effect of this wine. Very nice though. Needs some more time to develop.

This is an opulent wine with great velvety mouth fell and strong lingering (30 seconds) flavors of black-berry & dark cherry. Great bottle from start to finish
