Hewitt – Double Plus 2015 – Rutherford, Napa Valley

The nose is fine, fresh, fruity and offers a beautiful quality of the fruit, deepness and a beautiful delicacy of the grain. It reveals notes of fresh/juicy blackberry, fresh/juicy raspberry as well as fine hints of racy minerality, Cuben pepper, fresh iris associated with notes of lilac/violet and very discreet hints of tea. The mouth is fruity and offers definition, richness, freshness as well as finesse. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of juicy/fresh cassis and small notes of cherry associated with fine touches of crushed raspberry, fresh/juicy blueberry as well as fine hints of oak/toasted and discreet hints of tobacco leaves. Good length and persistence with a fine hint of bitterness on the cocoa.
