Perfectly peaking 2010 vintage. A legendary one for Hewitt.

Jumps out of the bottle smooth and fresh and delicious. Layers of fruit and balanced nicely. Very good.

Starting to show its age. Still hanging on though.

A generous portion of snappy dark fruit coated in a soft glove of vanilla and spice box. Very primary at the moment. Tannins have softened. Can easily enjoy now and should bring pleasure past 2025, potentially benefitting from some additional age, allowing some secondary characteristics to come into play.

Surprised this was available in the luxury suite to watch another Padres loss....and out of a plastic cup too. AAA quality baseball and sub par stems and it still performed extremely well. My first exposure to Hewitt and I liked it a lot. Full bodied, extracted blackberry and clove with nice round edges.

Superb. A well balanced mouthfeel with firm tannins supports an explosive pallet of deep bramble, cocoa, dusty forest floor, and light spices. A quintessential example of California Cabernet. Definitely partake if the opportunity arises.
