Dana Estates Helms Vineyard 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting notes: This dark red brims with black-cherry, black-currant, and blackberry flavors that give way on the finish to soft tannins accented by earthy clove and red apple. Only 440 cases were produced. Worth knowing: Although its inaugural wine was released to collectors only late last year, Dana Estates has deep ties in Napa Valley. Through Nara Foods—his import business based in his native South Korea—the label’s proprietor, Hi Sang Lee, has forged relationships with many of the region’s most prestigious wineries, such as Harlan Estate and Colgin Cellars. Lee joined this viticultural community in 2005, when he purchased 30 acres in Rutherford that once belonged to winemaking pioneer H. W. Helms.
