The Story:  The farming heritage runs deep at the Hayfork Ranch, as their great-great-great-grandfather, John Lewelling, a horticulturist by trade, settled the St. Helena family ranch in 1864. They started growing walnuts, prunes, pears and afterwards grapes, they have been continuously farming the land for six generations.  The past two decades the Llewelling vineyard has been the source for many highly-rated wines in Napa.

The Wine: The 2013 Hayfork arrived with a big WOW, it’s here!  This wine has created a real following. The Lewelling estate (dating back to 1864) has been producing some of the most amazing Cabernet and Blends in the Napa Valley.  Many wineries have been very successful with this fruit!.  Haley Wight’s version of the 2013 vintage is stunning! The wine is blend of 94% Estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot.  On the nose you are greeted by blue and black stone fruit, a touch of chocolate with a whiff of toasty vanilla.  On the palate this full-body, lush youngster is loaded with bright blue and black fruit, coffee, anise and a touch sweet oak.  The finish is long and pleasant.  Limited production

Robert Parker 2012 review 96 Points - I’d say that the 2013 is any bit as good, if not better!:

 

“The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Lewelling Ranch, which is actually a great value in the scheme of Napa pricing, is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot that was aged for 20 months in 70% new French oak. The wine displays gorgeous licorice, lead pencil shavings, black currants, loamy soil undertones and a touch of barrique. Dense purple, it has a full-bodied, multi-layered mouthfeel and a stunning finish with good acidity and velvety, well-integrated tannin, alcohol and wood. This is a scrumptious, full-throttle Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 15 or so years.”
