One of the best UNDER $80 Napa Cabernets, and it tastes like a $150.00 one

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 2018 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 2018 vintage is stunning! The wine is a blend of 96% Estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% 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

Winemaker notes: “This standout vintage of the Hayfork Lewelling Ranch Cabernet is defined by vibrant fruit and lively spice. With decisive balance, notes of wild plum, apricot stone, and savory subtle cedar, this pretty cabernet thrills the pallet with its flirtatious exuberance. The 2018 is a blend of 96% Cabernet and 4% Petit Verdot.”

Robert Parker 94 Points:  ”A blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lewelling Ranch was aged for 20 months in oak, 75% new. Deep garnet-purple in color, it leaps from the glass with lovely ripe blackcurrants, black raspberries and kirsch scents plus hints of dried herbs, pencil lead, menthol and Marmite toast. The full-bodied palate is coated with black fruit preserves, textured by velvety tannins. It has a delightful refreshing quality and finishes long and spicy”

Jeb Dunnuck 94 Points: “Loads of pretty blue fruits, sappy herb, candied orange, and spring flower notes emerge from the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lewelling Ranch. Medium to full-bodied, it has integrated acidity and a layered, textured, balanced style. Need a great Napa Cabernet under $100? Buy this.”
