Jeb Dunnuck 95 Points: “I loved the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Lewelling Ranch, which is made by the talented Haley Wight. A blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot, it has a vibrant bouquet of blueberries, fresh plums, violets, and tobacco. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and opulent on the palate, it stays perfectly balanced and is a joy to drink. There are a scant 475 cases. You won’t find many Cabernets better than this at the price.”
Winemaker notes: “The 2019 Hayfork Lewelling Ranch Cabernet is effortless. Both bold and lively, this vintage possesses a brightness of fruit like no other. With notes of apricot stone, plum preserves, and roasted cacao, together with round tannins and the pleasing spice indicative of the Lewelling Ranch, this wine is lovely now and will evolve gracefully with cellaring.”
Tasting Notes: The 2019 Hayfork Cabernet Sauvignon Lewelling Ranch is a blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it slips sensuously out of the glass with provocative scents of boysenberries, plum preserves, cassis, and underbrush, with hints of pencil shavings and charcoal. The full-bodied palate is wonderfully spicy with tons of juicy black fruits and a long opulent finish.
