Hershey Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Delectable Wine
9.5

Full ruby to the rim. Superripe, deep scents of cherry, mocha and gravel. As fine-grained and suave as the last two but enters the mouth with more obvious definition and mineral firmness, giving the middle palate more energy and thrust. Finishes with unmistakably powerful yet suave Howell Mountain tannins and outstanding slowly building length. Unlike the other two 2010s from Dana Estates, this very large-scaled wine really still needs a couple more years of patience. Good minerality and structure here, but still plenty of alcohol at 15.7%. Finishes with outstanding length and excellent lift. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, May 2020)

Vaso

Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2012

VASO cellars is essentially Dana Estate’s third label. However, what makes VASO unique is that while it’s a third label, the fruit that is used is the same fruit that goes in to Dana. No young vines or anything like that here. The main difference is the way it is oak aged. This SB comes from Dana’s Hershey Vineyard on Howell Mountain.

This is good. Like really good. Would love to try next to Dana’s own SB. 8yrs young and drinking wonderfully...almost shockingly so. This is like a combo of high end Bordeaux Blanc with Aesthete Sauv Blanc. Aromatically, it leaps from the glass with honeyed sea salt, grapefruit, lemongrass and white peach. On the palate, it is so textured and rich, almost creamy. More peach, poached pear, lemon oil, creamsicle, and wet rock. There is good acidity here (still at 8yrs for a Napa SB!), and while the profile is rounded, it’s certainly not flabby. One of the best Napa SBs I’ve tasted and still has a couple years of cruising at peak. I’m going to open my ‘13 soon, but I’m going to hold my ‘15 for a while! Best around cellar temp, don’t get it too cold or it will mute some of the flavors. I owe you for this one,

Wine-Searcher shows this up to $290/bottle. The true bottle shock! No Vaso to be found. Would have liked to compare with the Dragonette SB.

Jansen Estate Chambourcin 2013

Best Chambourcin in the Central PA area hands down. Unfiltered, which gives it a unique taste that not all may enjoy (except for me). Awesome aroma. — 5 years ago

Delightful rose...not too sweet. The twist of Chambourcin mellows out the sweetness. — 3 years ago

9.0

Much preferred this to the Dana Hershey Vyd. This at least had a character that seems to be derived from grapes. Firmer and with a more persistent finish that seems to vide well for this to start showing aromatic complexity with additional bottle age. — 4 years ago
