Winemaker Notes

Dark fruit and baking spices spring from the glass. The palate is dominated by ripe black and red fruit, intense minerality and a tannin profile that is pure unadulterated Hershey, the purest form of Howell Mountain. The slightest chalk and ash notes layered with fruit, anise and forest abound in the finish. Best enjoyed 2017 through 2030.

Critical Acclaim

RP98 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Hershey Vineyard comes from an 1,800-foot elevation and is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon harvested October 19-22. This is a sensational superstar from Howell Mountain with an inky purple color, notes of mocha, mulberry, crème de cassis, graphite and spring flowers. It is dense, full-bodied, opulent and concentrated with sweet but moderate tannin. This is a stunner that should drink well for another 25 or so years.
 
JS98 James Suckling
This really builds on the palate with slate, gun metal, blueberries, blackcurrants and blackberries on the nose and palate. Hints of mint. Full body, dense and chewy tannins that are like cashmere in texture. Layered and beautiful. Try in 2018.
