Dana Estates Hershey Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

"Aromas of blackberry and cassis fruit, baking spices, and violets spring from the glass. The palate is full bodied with layers of ripe plums, tar, licorice and the classic Hershey minerality. The wine is dense and structured as you would expect from Howell Mountain. The finish lingers with dark chocolate, savory herbs. This wine will grow in complexity as it ages. Best enjoyed 2018 through 2030." —winemaker

"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. A wine that is fascinating now but even better in 2020. 282 cases." —JamesSuckling.com

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Hershey Vineyard captures a classic expression of Howell Mountain. Graphite, crushed rocks, mint, lavender and inky blue/purplish fruit all find support from a backbone of firm, salivating tannins. Energetic and pulsating in style, the 2013 is going to require at least a few years in bottle to fully come around. The flavors are precise and finely sculpted throughout." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"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." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
