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 2019 Hayfork arrived with a big WAW (what a wine). 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 2019 vintage is stunning! The wine is a blend of 976% Estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% 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

The 2019 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.
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 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.”
