Tasting Notes


This really builds on the palate with slate, gun metal, blueberries, blackcurrants and blackberries on the nose and palate. Hints of mint. Full body, dense and chewy tannins that are like cashmere in texture. Layered and beautiful. Try in 2018.


Deep garnet colored, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Hershey Vineyard has a profoundly scented nose of baked cherries, mulberries with touches of smoked meats, mocha and fertile loam. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm structure of chewy tannins and great freshness, finishing long and earthy/minerally.

The Winery

Dana Estates

Dana Estate was named after the Sanskrit term meaning “the Spirit of Generosity.” Dana’s wines certainly live up to their name, delivering generously bold, fruit forward, full bodied Napa Cabs.

The winery was established by a South Korean businessman Hi Sang Lee, who was influenced by and consulted with some of the greatest Napa wineries and wine makers including Joseph Phelps and Philippe Melka. With their help and expertise, Lee pushed to produce some of the highest quality and very rare, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon’s in the world focusing on four vineyards: Helms, Hershey, the lauded Lotus as well as their newest vineyard, Crystal Springs. Dana certainly lives up to its name, so in the spirit of Dana estates, be generous to your taste buds and try these incredibly rare gems!
