    About Dana Estates

    Nestled at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains in the Napa Valley, Dana Estates is dedicated to the production of numerous truly distinctive world-class wines. Dana is in fact a Sanskrit term meaning “Spirit of Generosity”, and it is in this spirit that the team at Dana Estates expresses a profound appreciation for those that have worked the soil before them, as they build on the foundations laid by previous generations of winemakers.

    Dana Estates is the third winery to occupy this piece of vineyard land in the heart of the famed Rutherford Bench. First farmed and developed by German viticulturalist H. W. Helms in 1883, it was purchased in 1976 by John and Diane Livingston and served as the home for Livingston Moffett winery until proprietor Hi Sang Lee bought the property in 2005. The winery was re-designed by renowned architect Howard Backen as a result of the heavy investment courtesy of its new owner in a quest to ensure that the facilities of the estate would enable the production of consistently world-class wines, whilst also employing the legendary Philippe Melka as consultant. The results have been nothing short of outstanding.

    Dana Estates produces three single vineyard wines, from sites displaying dramatic differences: Helms Vineyard (Rutherford), Hershey Vineyard (Howell Mountain) and Lotus Vineyard (above St. Helena). Each vineyard is farmed organically at low yields to allow the unique qualities of each site to be expressed in the bottle.

    Dana Estates Helms Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 (3x75cl)
    Inc. VAT: £1,755.24
    2012

    Dana Estates Helms Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 (3x75cl)

    Vinous (96)

    Dana's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Helms Vineyard possesses remarkable structure and density, especially within the context of the year. Firm yet well-integrated tannins give the wine much of its energy, tension and focus. Black cherry jam, graphite, smoke and tobacco add nuance as the wine opens up in the glass. Far from an easygoing 2012, the Helms is going to need time to fully come together. There is so much to look forward to here. This is the first vintage since 2008 that was vinified in wood uprights, as was originally intended. The intervening vintages have been much shorter, so they were done in barrel. The 2012 impresses for its balance of fruit, acidity and tannin.

    Dana Estates Helms Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (1x150cl)

    Vinous (95)

    Dana's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Helms Vineyard opens with exquisite, floral-laced aromatics. Rose petal, mint, hard candy, sweet red cherry and cinnamon are all nicely delineated in the glass. Plump, forward and generous, the 2013 Helms is surprisingly approachable today for the year, but there is plenty of stuffing and structure underneath.

    Dana Estates Helms Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 (3x75cl)

    Vinous (98)

    A truly sensational wine, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Helms Vineyard is just breathtaking. Fresh, vibrant and towering in its beauty, the 2016 possesses off-the-charts aromatic intensity, fruit vibrancy and total harmony. Sweet floral and spice notes add freshness to this plush, deeply resonant Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon. The move to pick just a bit earlier has paid off big-time in bringing out the purity of the red-toned fruit. The 2016 is simply magnificent. Wow.

    Dana Estates Hershey Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 (3x75cl)

    Vinous (98)

    The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Hershey Vineyard has developed into a round, sumptuous Howell Mountain wine with the soft contours and exceptional overall balance. Iron, sweet red cherry, plum, smoke and licorice meld together in an open-knit yet structured Cabernet Sauvignon with tons of sheer appeal. The exotic, savory/mineral bouquet is pure Howell, but there is also a softness to the 2012 that makes it incredibly appealing, even today. A final kick of Howell Mountain tannin lingers on the close. As always, the Hershey is the most vivid and structured of the Dana Cabernets.

    Dana Estates Lotus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 (3x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (97)

    Deep garnet colored, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Lotus Vineyard (containing 7% Petit Verdot) offers up a gorgeous nose of fruitcake, potpourri and dried herbs over a core of crème de cassis, blueberry compote and raspberry tart. Medium to full-bodied, finely structured and with great freshness and approachability, it gives a wonderful core of muscular fruit and a long, mineral-laced finish.

    Dana Estates Lotus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (3x75cl)

    James Suckling (99)

    Here is a perfect wine with incredible aromatics showing lilacs, violets and roses. Slate, blueberry and blackberry undertones. Full-bodied, powerful and intense. Blueberry and hot stones. Incredible depth and intensity. This needs at least three to five years to come together. The mountain fruit delivers such structure and richness. About 300 cases. September release.

    Wine Advocate (97-100)

    A barrel sample due to be bottled in January 2018, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Lotus Vineyard has a deep garnet-purple color and very primary black and blue fruit nose of warm plums, blueberries and black cherries plus hints of spice box and pencil shavings. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and firmly structured with ripe, grainy tannins, it has bags of depth and a very long, multilayered finish.
