HERTELENDY CABERNET SAUVIGNON, NAPA VALLEY 2013
A surprise, big-time sleeper for me, as I have no previous experience with this winery. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a dense ruby/purple, the wine shows plenty of blueberry and black raspberry fruit, cassis, licorice and incense. It hits the palate with the oak nicely disguised. The wine has beautiful texture, a full body, terrific purity and palate presence. It should drink nicely for 15-20 years, and merit serious attention. Apparently just over 550 cases were produced of this wine. Drink Date 2016 - 2036 Robert M. Parker, Jr. 30th Dec 2015
NVWE Notes: This is a concentrated yet very stylish Cabernet with forthcoming aromas of red and black currant, Creme de Cassis, black cherry, vanilla, date sugar, licorice root and humidor-spice. Things are juicy-ripe and racy on the palate, where flavors of Umeboshi plum, rose and candied violet chime-in to accent the wine’s richer core of dark cherry and currant. The finish is silky, lingering and gently piquant, which keeps the opulence food-worthy. The lingering memory is of bright cherry-currant-plum fruit counter-pointed by sweet-savory notes of licorice, tobacco, vanilla and a hint of bitter chocolate. Delicious now, it should improve for several more years. 533 cases produced. Debut release!
