Ratings & Tasting notes:
Vinous Antonio Galloni – 97 pts:
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Hershey Vineyard is dense, powerful and very much closed in on itself, with less of the aromatic intensity and power it has shown in the past. There is good depth and density in the glass, but I suspect the wine is simply going through a subdued phase given how the 2014 has shown in the past and how magnificent the other 2014s are today.
Robert Parker – 95+ pts:
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Hershey Vineyard comes from a Howell Mountain vineyard at an 1,800-foot elevation. The classic Howell Mountain Cabernet characteristics of rich mulberry and blackberry fruit allied to graphite and earth are all present in this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 26 months in French oak of which 93% was new. Low-acid, plump, fleshy and sexy, this is a gorgeous wine, but relatively limited with only 280 cases produced. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.
Stored in a climate controlled cellar on its side in the dark at 55 degrees F and 75% humidity since purchase.
