2016 Robert Parker Results

94+ Points – 2013 HANNA Alexander Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon ($62)

“The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve/Red Ranch is a big-time winner, maybe even a sleeper of the vintage. The wine offers juicy, succulent blueberry and blackberry fruit along with licorice and cassis. It is full-bodied, opulent and flavorful, multilayered and complex already. This is a stunning wine and certainly the best Cabernet Sauvignon I have ever tasted from Hanna. This beauty should age effortlessly for two decades.”

93 Points – 2013 HANNA Bismark Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon ($65)

“The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Bismark Mountain Vineyard from Moon Mountain (the Sonoma side of the famous Mayacamas Mountains) is a Cabernet Sauvignon from vineyards planted between 1,700-2,000 feet. This beautiful, striking wine is full-bodied and rich, with loads of cassis, blackcurrants, licorice and big, full-throttle flavors with sweet tannin and impeccable balance. This is another winner.”

91 Points – 2013 HANNA Bismark Mountain Titan ($64)

“The 2013 Red Blend Titan, which comes from the Bismark Mountain Vineyard within the relatively recent Moon Mountain AVA, is a blend of 65% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Franc, 13% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a showy, extroverted style of wine with an inky bluish/purple color, notes of blueberry, coffee, pen ink and flowers, medium to full body, supple tannins, and an attractive texture and length. This is an intriguing blend, and Hanna has certainly gotten it right. Drink it over the next 12-15 years.”

89 Points – 2013 HANNA Reserve Alexander Valley Alchimie ($64)

“The 2013 Proprietary Red Reserve Alchimie, which hails from Red Ranch in Alexander Valley, is a blend of Bordeaux grapes. Dense ruby/purple with cassis, blueberry and floral notes, the wine is medium to full-bodied with sweet tannin and nicely integrated wood. This is a well-made blend to drink over the next 10-15+ years.”

88 Points – 2013 HANNA Alexander Valley “Red Ranch” Cabernet Sauvignon ($42)

“Another delicious wine is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Ranch. A surprisingly supple, young Cabernet, the wine has a dense  ruby/purple color, loads of blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, spice, earth and graphite. It is medium to full-bodied, rich and well-made. I found this to be a surprisingly elegant take on Cabernet. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.”
