We started our day here recently and each tasting after paled in comparison. While it was stormy outside, we learned a great deal during the hour we spent in conversation with Juan. Each of the reds were delicious with the 2013 Cabernet Franc as a standout. This one is not-to-miss on the long checklist of recommendations even after many visits to Napa.

My husband and I visited on a recent Sunday. We each chose a different tasting so that we could have a little bit of many wines. I did the reserve tasting. We both enjoyed the wines that we tasted. Linda was generous in allowing us to try some of the Hewitt wines as well. She could sense that we were giving consideration to joining the wine club, so she had us sit down and had us each try even more of the Hewitt wines. At one point we took a break and brought a nice Hewitt tasting outside and played some corn hole while making a decision about the club. I am a big Cab Sav fan, and these were good wines. After some consideration we decided to join the Hewitt club. We are looking forward to receiving our first shipment soon.

Aside from the Barrel Select and their dessert wines, I didn't really rate any of their other reds or whites. But to give it only 3 stars would be harsh because the rest of the experience was fun and the host generous with the tastings.

From a European perspective, although all the wines in Napa are generally decent, they're very expensive so I would be unlikely to buy them when I can buy equivalents for less money. The Cab Savs are good, but you can get cheaper ones of equal quality from other countries. This was true of the Barrel Select. Nice wine for sure but expensive.
Tasting from the barrel direct is a bit of fun - the wine has obviously not been blended yet so is unrepresentative of the finished article but it's educating nonetheless.

Our host was generous with the tastings and let us taste their port and dessert wines.
