Dana Estates Hershey Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Howell Mountain|
Wine AdvocateTwo wines that I did not see from bottle have turned out to be close to perfection. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Hershey Vineyard has unbelievable richness, a profound opaque purple color and enormous notes of lead pencil shavings intermixed with blackberry liqueur, white flowers and crushed rock. The wine is full-bodied and dense with moderately high tannin, but the tannin is integrated and silky. This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and look for it to evolve for 30-35 years.
Wine SpectatorWell-built, featuring taut, gritty tannins and a mix of charcoal, graphite, cedar and dark berry flavors, with charry oak dominating. Best from 2020 through 2032.
