The Story: Hertelendy wines represent an Old World family tradition over many centuries, from 18th-century Veltlínske zelené (Grüner Veltliner) and Rizling vlašský (Welschriesling) vineyards near Budatin Castle in Slovakia to Hungarian wines produced by their ancestral Great Uncle Gábor Hertelendy.  Fast forward…. 21st Century…. New World… Napa Valley

 

The Wine: This bold Cabernet combines classic mountainside structure with graceful purity and sophistication. The aromas reveal dark cherry, blackcurrant, and crème de cassis, along with notes of mocha, leather, and vanilla. Rich notes of ripe, dark fruit and baking spices are layered with velvety, lush tannins and an explosive, long-lingering finish. Flirtatious nuances evolve within the textural expansiveness, culminating in a wine that displays elegance, opulence, and finesse.

 

Robert Parker 95 Points: “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.”
