Hershey vineyard on Howell Mountain is 26 acres in total 18 of which were planted in 2008. It is planted to just about all aspects imaginable so it?s quite a varied site although the Dana Hershey label comes mainly from just four blocks. This barrel sample of the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Hershey Vineyard is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (clones See and 191) and is due to be aged for 25 months in French oak barrels 100% new. Deep garnet-purple in color it slowly emerges from the glass with notes of crushed rocks graphite and mossy tree bark with a core of redcurrant jelly wild blueberries and Black Forest cake plus a profoundly pure undercurrent of cassis. Medium to full-bodied the palate is impeccably crafted with super-fine tannins and loads of earthy layers lifted by amazing freshness finishing long and perfumed. 467 cases are projected to be made. No Hershey vineyard was produced in 2018.
