Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

This cab from DANA is mostly from their Hershey vineyard on Howell Mtn.

I know 2013s are powerful and tightly coiled, and DANA’s style is along those same lines, but I have to admit...this was incredibly coiled and almost unforgiving. I gave this a 4hr decant (which I followed from the beginning), and then another 3hrs out of the bottle later in the evening...and didn’t experience much of an awakening. Fragrant and floral with potpourri, violets, black currant and oak. The front palate here is quite nice in texture with notes of dark fruits, cocoa powder, espresso, extremely dusty with an herbal streak to its core. It’s very Howell Mtn in style. Good acidity and an absolute wall of tannin on the finish. This got marginally better at the end of the evening and revealed a sweeter/baking spice type finish. If opening now, I’d double decant at least 4-6hrs before enjoying.

30 years from now David, you'll still be handsome but your taste buds might not know the difference between chocolate milk and Cabernet@David T

As long as I have no long haul taste & smell symptoms from Covid-20 or other, be just fine. 🤙 Actually, I’ll be off world by then. 😜
