Wine Review: This opaque and deep ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Hewitt opens with a black currant and cola bouquet with hints of forest floor, stewed plum and espresso. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is very smooth and juicy. The flavor profile is very tasty black currant and stony mineral blend with notes of black plum. We also detected hints of strawberry, but that evolved into oak and black cherry with some aeration. The finish is dry and its big boy tannins build-up and last for a very very long time. The Panel would decant this impressive Cab for 2 hours and then serve it a well-marbled ribeye. Enjoy – KWGTP
