Ralph Hertelendy is proving to be a rising star in Napa Valley’s Cult Cab scene. Hertelendy Vineyards made an immediate impression in the wine world with the initial release of the 2013 Hertelendy Cabernet Sauvignon. Praise was instantaneous when the wine received 95 points by Robert Parker in the Wine Advocate.
‘A surprise, big time sleeper for me…’ Robert Parker
‘This is, without question, one of the best modern examples of Napa Valley we have tasted in quite some time and can easily hold its own in the brass ring of Napa’s superstars.’ Ian Cauble, Master Sommelier
In addition to receiving high praise from Parker and Cauble, perhaps one of the most impressive testimonials is that this small production wine can be found on wine lists of many acclaimed restaurants, including The French Laundry, Morimoto Napa, and Poesia in San Francisco. Ralph Hertelendy melds old world technique and family traditions to craft exceptional wines using fruit sourced from his vineyard on Howell Mountain and ultra-premium Napa vineyards. Ralph says about his wine-making philosophy, “It’s a profound passion, plus there just not enough mind-bending wines in this world. Never compromise quality- quality above all else.” Ralph’s wines express terroir and his passion and he does not hesitate to push the envelope in his never ending pursuit of ‘perfection’. Will this exciting young producer be catapulted among Napa Valley’s elite? Only time will tell, but the start is propitious.
