Region California, Napa Valley, Mt. Veeder
Brand Hess
Alcohol/vol 14.8%
Aroma: Ffilled with generous aromas of blue and black fruits - blackberry, blueberry and a hint of dark chocolate. This wine is always refined and elegant, and in the 2014 vintage there is a density in both flavor and texture that draws me right to it. The palate displays a beautiful spectrum of rich, ripe, dark fruits supported by distinctive barrel spice flavors and mouth coating tannins. This Cabernet Sauvignon showcases the signature style of Mount Veeder fruit with depth and richness, a velvety texture and a lasting vibrancy.

The top of the producer's pecking order, this estate-grown red employs 17% Malbec, a house specialty, which adds richness and grip to the structure. Leathery tannins, clove and black pepper ride along layers of red cherry and cassis, finishing fully integrated and powerful in weight.

A taut, powerful expression of rich, extracted Cabernet, with dense dark berry and loamy, gravelly earth flavors and cedary oak. Too young now, and may wrestle with tannins throughout its life. Best from 2020 through 2032. 1,023 cases made.
