Hershey Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (Magnum)Dana Estates
|Region||Napa, North Coast|
From Howell Mountain, the 100% Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Hershey Vineyard was scheduled for bottling not long after my tasting in August. This shows more graphite, vanilla, chocolate and cassis, along with striking minerality. A very structured, tannic, big, backward and sensationally concentrated wine, this is another profound example of this vintage that should hit its stride in 5-6 years and last 30-40+ years.

JS: The aromas of tar, slate, and graphite with dark fruits such as blackberries are so prevalent here. Licorice too. Smoked meat. Full-bodied, very layered, dense and profound. Mouth-filling and structured.
